Record Number of Questions Answered in Special Collections

We’re a big fan of treats in the library, as well as celebrations. So we knew we needed a celebratory cake to commemorate yet another record-breaking year in Special Collections. The numbers on the cake represent the number of questions Special Collections staff assisted researchers with between August 23, 2010 and August 21, 2011. 857 is the total number of questions asked by researchers, while 718 is the number of times staff assisted Augustana students.  Other questions came from Augustana faculty, staff, and administrators, as well as from community members and faculty and students from other institutions.

Special Collections looks forward to another year of working with a wide variety of researchers on many different projects.
