Montana State University is on its way to becoming the world's largest and most comprehensive research center on trout and salmonoids. The library at MSU is home to a vast collection of print, archival and digital works on these valuable species. The classroom sessions will examine angling in literature, art, history and culture; the threats to angling, fisheries and the world's waters; and actions you can take to help preserve fisheries and angling opportunities. If you're not an angler, don't worry. This course will have something for everyone. After all, what's more entertaining than a good fishing story?
Participants will have the opportunity to visit the library's collection during a face-to-face archive tour on Dec. 4 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. or 1 to 3 p.m. Individuals visit time will be decided in class.
