A growing collection currently developing at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the Arts Collection intends to bring together "in digital form, primary and secondary materials relating to the creative arts as broadly defined: visual, literary, musical, and performing." The first components of the collection are a journal Arts in Society, published at University of Wisconsin from 1958 to 1976, and the exhibition catalog from a show of photographs by Lewis Koch, "Notes from the Stone-paved Path: Meditations on North India", exhibited at UW-Madison in 2003. The catalog was a little cantankerous viewed with Safari on MAC OSX, but includes over a dozen high quality black-and-white photographs by Koch, paired with books and poetry from the UW-Madison Libraries Special Collections. The full text of 41 issues of Arts in Society is available; the journal primarily published themed issues, such as Volume 5, Issue 1 (1968) happenings and intermedia, which kicks off with an introduction by editor Edward L. Kamarck entitled "Intermedia is a better name than happenings: what we had in mind in putting together this issue".
