Reading Room statistics excerpted from the annual report

Stories, statistics, visualizations, and some lists--along with lots of photos--give insight into the work happening in the Special Collections Research Center, including scholarship, reading room activities, instruction, exhibits, and notable acquisitions. This year's report, our second, also features our move into our current public space on the 6th floor of Hatcher Graduate Library.

Happy reading!
