Since 2001, a collection of strange and beautiful library oddities has been growing in Walter Library at the University of Minnesota. These oddities tell an interesting story of an evolving organization. Care of the collection has recently been entrusted to me, and I'll be sharing it with you.
"Let us save what remains: not by vaults and locks which fence them from the public eye and use in consigning them to the waste of time, but by such a multiplication of copies, as shall place them beyond the reach of accident." ---Thomas Jefferson
