Library Displays for May 2018

The Lewis J. Ort Library is pleased to present 4 new displays for May.

The first display, located on the 2nd floor, celebrates the 200th anniversary of the publication of Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, in 1818. Information about Shelley is included in the display as well as other books that relate to the topic of Gothic horror and science of the 19th century.

The second display, located on the 3rd floor, highlights spacecraft that have orbited and landed on the planet Venus. The atmospheric pressure and temperature on Venus is so high that most spacecraft last less than 1 hour on the planet. The display also highlights the resources the library has on the planet Venus.

The third display, located on the 4th floor, highlights birds of Maryland. There are over 400 bird species that makes Maryland their home and over 200 that have breeding grounds in the state. The display highlights just a few of the birds that make Maryland their home and includes some resources on birds found in the library's collection.

The fourth display, located on the 5th floor, highlights the state parks of Maryland. There are over 50 state parks within Maryland. The state parks provide access to nature, wildlife, and history. The display also highlights some of the resources the library has on state parks in Maryland.

The display on Venus will be up through the end of May. The displays on Frankenstein, birds of Maryland, and the state parks of Maryland will be up through the end of August.
