Shipshape Launches @ MPL

Project Shipshape is the newest destination for Great Lakes ship information. Supported by grants from the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program as well as local funding, the Shipshape database is the result of a collaboration between the Milwaukee Public Library and the Wisconsin Marine Historical Society.

Shipshape contains information on over 10,000 vessels that have sailed the Great Lakes. It is a great source of information on the ships themselves, as well as names of builders, owners, and captains. Additionally, complete files on each vessel, including articles from books and magazines, nautical charts, photographs and vessel flags are available in the Central Library’s Frank P. Zeidler Humanities Room.
