New MLIS student tour of Special Collections – success!

25 09 2008

Nicole Bouche, Pacific Northwest Curator, lead a tour of 44 new Master’s of Library and Information Science (MLIS) students through Special Collections. Not only was the turn-out larger than anticipated, but the group was enthusiastic and had some great comments and questions.

One of the questions was,¬†“What is the oldest thing in your collection?,” to which Nicole answered, “We have Medieval manuscripts, but the¬†Buddhist texts may pre-date those.” Stay tuned….maybe we’ll get a firm answer from Rare Books Curator, Sandra Kroupa.
