The Special Collections Library Image Bank is a repository intended to capture the digitized images of Special Collections materials in the public domain created for incidental requests — such as those from patrons or from curatorial staff for outreach initiatives.
The University of Michigan Library’s first acquisition was John James Audubon's The Birds of America . After a brief interval of 175 years, it has been joined by Audubon's final work. In August, we acquired the only known complete copy of his Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America, which includes the long-rumored but never before seen 151st lithographic plate, depicting the Lepus antilooapra of North America. This image is lacking in all other known copies of the work.
We are always delighted to support learning and engagement with our materials, especially as they inspire new scholarship and research. Read this guest blog post from local high school student, Dale (Trip) Apley III, who visited our library to analyze the Galileo Manuscript for a scientific experiment he recently conducted.
