Here at the University of Missouri Library Depositories, we’re all about the King. And while we couldn’t make it to Graceland to mark the 40th anniversary of Elvis’ death last week, we were still celebrating here in Columbia. If you would like a little more Elvis in your life–and who wouldn’t, really–give a listen to this 1976 copy of Elvis’ The Sun Sessions, available now for check-out.
We’re often awed by the beautiful bookplates and illustrations we find at the University of Missouri Library Depositories, and some of the most impressive we’ve come across of late are from volume 11 of The Odd-Fellows’ Offering. Published in 1852, this volume is part of the series collecting “gems of American literature by distinguished members of the order and other eminent writers.” While we work to make it available for check out, why not have a look at some of the other volumes, available online through https://www.hathitrust.org/.
