The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Tourism and the International Wolf Center.

Schaller, David T.

The International Wolf Center opened in Ely, Minnesota in 1993, seeking to educate the public about wolf ecology by attracting tourists to its programs and displays. In 1996 a graduate student surveyed visitors to the center and visitors to Ely to see what kind of success the center is having. The center is drawing new tourists to the area and an analysis of its economic impact was made. This report also includes suggestions for increasing the center's ongoing popularity.
