Last Thursday’s class was my first time getting a brief glimpse of what the MARBL had to offer, besides the amazing view of Atlanta. To be honest, prior to this class, I never went above the 7th floor in the library, and now I wish I had. The vastness and of the MARBL collection was explained with a few examples (handwritten religious texts, 1800 novels, Alice Walker’s notes). Another thing I wasn’t aware of, besides the existence of a tenth floor, was the delicate and careful handling of the items in the collection. In addition to the research in this class, I will surely pay a few visits to Samuel Beckett’s collection. Pluto out.
