Please join Professor Andrew Stauffer of the University of Virginia for a Book Traces workshop at Lied Library. Book Traces is a nationwide crowdsourcing project that aims to re-discover and preserve the physical traces of past readers, their reading habits and their personal lives, left behind in the pages of nineteenth-century books: writings, drawings, flowers and other souvenirs. The workshop will consist of a scavenger hunt through the library stacks to find these traces of readers and lost time, with expert support from University Libraries librarians.
Lied Library maintains a collection of anatomical models – including 3D versions of muscles, organs, and bones – that are available for student checkout. UNLV students may borrow up to two models for two hours from the Lied Library Circulation Desk. A visual catalog, detailing the complete collection as well as real-time availability of each model may be viewed online.
