There's Gold In Them There Hills

Not being an original native of Ohio, I've come to love Ohio for the good things it has, including extensive library support, lots of historical places and, well, the Buckeyes! However, there is a treasure located in Columbus, that Joe Blundo wrote about in last week's Dispatch. That is the OSU archives.

Being a history major as well a librarian, the thought of archives and being able to explore the material inside, makes for an exciting day. Joe, in particular, points out one thing besides library materials that they do have:

"...The splintered piece of goal post from the 1955 Rose Bowl? That was a keeper...."

For more details, here's some links:

I'll be writing more about these archives soon....there's lots more good information, including John Glenn and the Byrd Polar Archives.

See kids, there are some things you just can't do online! :)

Stay Tuned!
