Drawing from Mason Libraries’ Special Collections & Archives‘ wide-raging collections, this exhibit features unusual, unique or otherwise unconventional archival items. The items selected for this exhibit are non-textual and intended to be visually appealing. Some of the selections are unusual items from heavily used collections such as the tomato marionette from the Federal Theatre Project Collection. Other selections are from smaller or lesser known collections such as the Japanese sash from the Leonard H. Clark Collection. Regardless, the exhibit serves to highlight items not traditionally found in an archive.Â Mason’s Hidden Treasures are now on display, 2nd Floor, Wing A, Fenwick Library and you can view selected treasures online.

Project MUSE is pleased to announce the addition of a new search feature that quickly connects users to more articles by an author. Look for the new ‘More By’ feature on each article. The ‘More By’ feature appears for each article’s listed contributing author(s).Â Click on the linked author name to find additional articles in MUSE by the author.Â The ‘More By’ this author feature in MUSE continues MUSE’s efforts to provide users with tools to enhance their research and discovery.
In addition to providing quick access to more MUSE articles by the author, MUSE expanded the search to include links to more works by the author in Google Scholar and OCLC WorldCat. Google Scholar indexes peer-reviewed articles, books, theses, papers and abstracts from a wide variety of sources across many disciplines. Linking to the author’s works in WorldCat using the ‘Find in a library’ link adds depth to a user’s research, as the WorldCat record provides information about access to all formats of the author’s work. WorldCat allows users to search the collections of libraries in their communities, as well as many others around the world, for both physical items and digital content.
