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.
