Special Collections

The KB Catalogue includes several Special Collections. Each Collection consists of documents & data sets focusing on a specific topic or geographic area within the Gulf of Maine region.

Special Collections include a series of focused searches that display information on individual sub-topics — for example, water quality in Maine lakes, birds of Boston Harbor Islands, etc. (Note: each document & data set in these collections is also accessible through KB’s Quick & Advanced Searches.)

Some of these Special Collections exist as KB Partner Websites — sites that feature their own content but use the KB Catalogue to store and retrieve documents & sdata sets. Other Collections are displayed only from this KB page. [ More about Special Collections ]
