Welcome to the Arctic Studies guide!
The University of Illinois is currently celebrating the centenary of the Crocker Land Expedition, an Arctic expedition co-sponsored by the University of Illinois, that included young University of Illinois graduates W. Elmer Ekblaw and Maurice Tanquary. The Rare Book & Manuscript Library holds a significant collection of Arctic materials, and is currently exhibiting part of that collection as "Names Swallowed by the Cold: Hidden Histories of Arctic Exploration" (on display until April 8th, 2013).
See the Overview page for a number of topics central to Arctic Studies.
