DID YOU KNOW LIBRARIES HAVE MORE THAN JUST BOOKS?
Libraries collect all types of things; yes, books are still pretty prominently displayed. But you’ll find such things as Duke University’s glass eyeball collection (in their History of Medicine Collection), Princeton’s ‘Libertine Literature’ collection (no link included, and Google at your own risk; that’s a delicate phrase that translates to ‘historical smut’), and Northwestern’s WWII poster collection (some seriously dark stuff, there – they took their advertising seriously!) Perhaps creepiest of all is UC Santa Barbara’s Betsy Brown Puppetry Collection. Click here for more trivia.
