For visitors whose only introduction to Minnesota is from the movie "Fargo" or Garrison Keillor's fictional town of Lake Wobegon, the website Minnesota Reflections comprehensively shows the many other facets of life in the land of 10,000 lakes. The Minnesota Digital Library Coalition has created this digital project as part of a collaborative effort involving the contributions of 95 cultural heritage institutions across Minnesota. The contributions include a total of 31,000 documents, images, and maps, and can be searched, or browsed "by collection", "by topic", or "by region". The 22 topics to be browsed range from "Agriculture" to "Indians of North America" to "Famous Minnesotans" to "Weather". Browsing "by region" will give the visitor the choice of eight regions to explore. The "Preferences" link up in the top right side of the page allows visitors to choose how their results are displayed.
