Special Collections Library reading rooms often require special equipment to view non-traditional record formats such as VHS players, cassette players, microfilm readers, etc. The Rubenstein Library recently welcomed a new piece to the set: a desktop computer.
Though public computers have been available in our reference room for a long time to assist in finding and requesting physical materials in the reading room this new machine has been designed to support providing local access to electronic records and audio/video materials.
Some of the materials you can explore on the computer include:
- Doris Duke singing (from the Doris Duke Papers)
- Writings from Sallie Bingham, Marshall T. Meyer, Leo Bogart, and others
- Transcripts of interviews from the Mark Bowden Papers, the Behind the Veil Project, and Nancy Hanks Papers
- Various documents from the Merle Hoffman Papers and the Sisterhood is Global Institute Records
Visit the reading room today and start that e-research!
