For Your Weekend Repository Browsing Pleasure: “Videos from Rice University’s Fondren Library”

Ithaca, NY Libraries often house hidden treasures and institutions now use social networks to bring those treasures to light. A typical library exhibit displayed in a hallway may stimulate casual observers as they walk from the reading room to the water fountain. A library exhibit featured on YouTube can effectively tell the story of scholarly assets to extend their cultural value beyond library communities. Rice University’s Fondren Library has highlighted some of their collections in short You Tube videos that include:
Photographs of Vera Prasilova Scott and Houston Society in 1920s
Sing the Glory: An Illuminated Manuscript of Adoration
Other featured Fondren library videos include:
