Library catalogs don't play well with three dimensional objects. As a result, despite the fact that the Hay Library holds a wide variety of objects that you might want to work with, you will have a hard time using JOSIAH to find them.
Your best resource for finding the objects hiding in our holdings is to consult the Hay Library staff. We don't bite -- I promise! Below is a list of staff and their respective subject areas:
Staff member and Areas of expertise
Jennifer Betts, University Archivist History of Brown University
Christopher Geissler, Director Literature and popular culture
Peter Harrington, Curator ASKB Military Collection
Holly Snyder, Curator American history, History of Science
If you can't find one of us, feel free to consult Ann Morgan Dodge, our Reader Services Coordinator. Ann has worked at the Hay for nearly 30 years, and knows where a LOT of objects are buried.
