Behind the scenes

Karen and Jeff have been hard at work shifting collections and cleaning up stacks space to help accommodate new materials from the School of Dentistry and university administrative offices. Last week they took on the small, cramped room where most of our museum collection is stored. Karen snapped a nice "behind the scenes" photo of the newly tidied space:

Large artifacts sit on open shelving, while small and fragile items are stored in archival boxes. All are indiividually tagged with an accession number that uniquely identifies each item.

Selections from our artifacts collection are included in rotating exhibits in the Main Library, but we hope someday to have a permanent museum display.
