Animating the Book: Animating Library Outreach 

Colleen Theisen, Special Collections & University Archives Outreach & Instructional Librarian

Fans of "the book" and all it represents are creating communities on social media, hungry for a steady diet of beautiful photographs and quirky animations about the book. Micro-miniature to elephant folio, historic editions to artist's creations, Special Collections & University Archives has been feeding the Tumblr book community and sneaking in some hidden agenda as well - educating about book history and the real day to day work it takes to sustain a library collection.
