test post

Although Thursday’s class was not my first time in MARBL, it was the first time I was able to get an in depth look at what the collection had to offer.  It was unbelievable to see how well maintained a book from the 13th century is  and how archivists have preserved rare gems such as a scrap piece of toilet paper. In a time where the vast majority of us use online databases and the internet to access information, it was refreshing to see print sources that could be used as an alternative research tool.
