Turning the Book Wheel
A tumblr of semi-random stuff from the stacks of the Smithsonian Libraries
This year we digitized 1665 items from our History, Art, and Culture library collections including many gems that have appeared sporadically on this tumblr. This is in addition to the over 2000 items we scanned for the Biodiversity Heritage Library.   All are available on the Internet Archive for free (as in beer) for reading, downloading, reusing and remixing. We’ll keep on digitizing until someone tells us to stop (in which case we will ignore them) or until we run out of books or money. 
Shout out to Erin, Gilbert, JJ, Daniel, David, Stefaan and all the SIL staff who feed the scanning beast.
