Lilly Library Curation Internship- Week 7

This week is a pretty short week, because of the holiday. I did observe a class however, helping me to understand how the Lilly uses their teaching collections. I also met with my advisor and the Outreach and Education Librarian to discuss what specific kinds of things are needed for the teaching collection. Many of the kinds of things that are used for teaching are incunabula from the vault. I’m going to complete a survey of all of the incunabula in the stacks in order to find similar items to those vault materials that the Lilly may have limited access to during the renovation.
