About the Collection
Items from the Library is a potpourri of objects sampled from the library's wide-ranging collections. This collection includes
• text materials, such as small books and pamphlets that, because of their age or condition, might not otherwise be available for use,
• broadsides and maps,
• early digitization efforts,
• items originally scanned for use in online exhibits,
• unique and hard-to-catagorize items that still deserve a place in the spotlight, although they might not fit within the scope of our current digital collections.
