This is the ‘miscellaneous’ section in Media for stuff that doesn’t quite pigeonhole into more definable formats such as books or videos.These are generally less formal productions—sometimes snippets from other documents—as opposed to ‘finished’ reports for print or digital publication. Also in this section are digital versions of sign content for ten 3-panel sign arrays at trailheads throughout the CBJ.
