With sponsorship from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and other organizations, The Perkins Geology Museum at the University of Vermont has been able to expand their online offerings in recent years. Most visitors will want to make sure and look over the "Perkins Digital Archive" and the "Landscape Change Program" sections. In the "Perkins Digital Library" area, visitors can make their way through over one thousand images of rocks, minerals, and fossils. Users can get started by searching the database by keyword or location, and alternately they can click on lists of thematic collections. Moving on, the "Landscape Change Program" features a database of over 24,000 images that document landscape change in Vermont from 1690 to the present day. It's an impressive collection, and visitors can search the materials via a search engine, a random sample, or by county. Just to get started, visitors might type in "Burlington" or "covered bridges" for fun.
