In September, the Rubenstein Library partnered with colleagues in the Natural and Engineering Sciences (NSE) for an open house event. While our Engineering Exposition targeted students, faculty, and staff from Duke’s Pratt School of Engineering, all were welcome to attend.
Items from a variety of collecting areas within the Rubenstein Library were available for visitors to examine and handle. Some highlights included
- A 16th century amputation saw from the History of Medicine Collections
- A lipstick tester from the Consumer Reports Archive
- Engineering Department photographs, blueprints, and copies of the DukEngineer from Duke’s University Archives
- And much more! So much more! Including this video from the Consumer Reports lab.
We look forward to our continued partnerships with colleagues across the Library and campus. Let us know what you might like to see at our next Engineering Exposition!
