Content Description Note: This collection consists of published and unpublished papers on topics relating to Yellowstone National Park. For the most part, the papers added to this ongoing collection are substantial research or feature articles rather than newspaper clippings or ephemeral pieces. Some articles may be removed in the future for item-level cataloging as time permits. Arrangement is alphabetical by author, or by publisher if no author is listed. For subject access see the various periodical indexes at Information Services Department.
