You may be surprised to learn that even the staff who work in Miner Library are continuously surprised and amazed by the wealth of resources in our historical collections. So, we’ve decided to investigate something new each month, with the help of Christopher Hoolihan, our Rare Books & Manuscripts/History of Medicine librarian. And then, we’re going to share it with you, too.
But we’re going to make you work a little bit; hold you in suspense for a while.
Here’s the plan…
We’ll show you a photographic image of the object, then give you a chance to guess what it is. In about a week, we’ll “tell all” in a brief video.
If someone guesses the name of the object correctly, prior to our releasing the video, that person will win a coupon that can be used at any of the Medical Center’s Finger Lakes Coffee carts. (Oh, and the way you submit your guess is by sending a comment to this blog posting.)
Ready? Great! Here’s the first mystery object. (No, not the quarter! We knew there’d be a wise guy in the bunch! The quarter is provided to give you an idea of the size of the mystery object.)
