The first thing we thought of when we joined the #nothiddenlabor challenge was highlighting the amazing work done by our staff librarians and archivists. What we didn't expect was that almost all of the would only be willing to appear in photos if no one could really see what they look like! That said Adrian, Nicola, Yvette, and Elisiene, keep the wheels running around here. They manage researchers in the reading room, handle logistics for recalling collections from offsite, arrange and describe collections, process new acquisition invoices, set up displays for classes and tours, and always share the interesting items they come across day-to-day. The value of their work cannot be overstated, and this is a post for them (even if you can't see their faces). ______________________________ #SpecialCollections#librariesofinstagram#librariansofinstagram#archivistsofinstagram#iglibraries#ig_libraries#UMKislakCenter

Missing our Pan Am posts? So did we! Our staff has been busy sprucing up the library’s Cleared to Land site and we’ve designed some new exhibit pages we think you’ll really like. We’ve already posted one exhibit page called “Welcome Aboard: A Look at Service in the Stratosphere”. Stay tuned as we serve you up even more content! With support from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, we are digitizing over 60 boxes of brochures, timetables, annual reports, and publications from the Pan Am collection. Check back regularly as we take to the skies with Pan Am. ______________________________ #fabflyingFriday#UMLdigitalexhibits#PanAmonInstagram#iglibraries#ig_libraries#specialcollections#librariesofinstagram#PanAm#inflightservice#airlinefood

One of the two compressors in our stacks HVAC unit needed to be replaced this week. Anytime there is service or we can't help but watch. It's an impressive machine and regulates the collection area to a steady 67F (20C) and 55% relative humidity. Glad to have it well maintained. ____________________________ #nothiddenlabor#specialcollections#librariesofinstagram#hvac#climatecontrol#iglibraries#ig_libraries#stacks#collectionstorage

We're so excited to announce #SpineTingling, a new @iglibraries challenge that we're sponsoring in October with @pemlibrary! Every Wednesday of the month, we're challenging libraries to show off their most spectacular, intricate, and weird book spines, as well as skeleton/spine images, and any other spine-related riffs. We hope you'll join us in highlighting that part of the book that entices us to take it off the shelf & have a peruse! Hint: the last Wednesday falls on Halloween, so keep an eye out for spooky spines! #WednesdayChallenge#bookspines#iglibraries#librariesofinstagram#bookstagram#rarebooks#iglibraries#ig_libraries

Coming off of Labor Day, our friends @utsaspeccoll@transportationlibrary@laborarchiveswa have issued the #nothiddenlabor challenge for September to highlight and celebrate all aspects of US and International labor. Our first share comes from the Pan American World Airways Inc. collection (ASM0341) from "In Focus: A Briefing for all Management" January 29, 1985. Pan Am and the Transportation Workers Union (TWU) were involved in negotiations over raises and ensuring that Pan Am honored previous agreements for pay raises. TWU called a strike on February 28, immediately after the cooling off period expired. The strike lasted through Mach 1985. _______________________________ #laborhistory#specialcollections#librariesofinstagram#bookstagram#PanAm#PanAMNHPRC#strike#TWU#iglibraries#ig_libraries

Doing the heavy lifting of exhibit prep today. We wanted to change up the look of our inset wall cases so we took out one full shelf and dropped down the half shelf. It was a good morning's workout. Each of those full shelves weights about 30 pounds. See picture 2 for the after. The third photo shows the shelf supports. We have big plans for all that blank canvas space. Stay tuned!! ______________________________ #exhibitprep#turnaboutTuesday#shelves#installationinprogress#specialcollections#librariesofinstagram#iglibraries#ig_libraries

There are some #zines and #artistsbooks in our collection that we have trouble nailing down and understanding the point of. We're always pleased when the author/creator shares their inspiration: "An attempt to play this tape mirrors my attempts at speaking...struggling to find words to fit, unconsciously eye grind my teeth in my sleep. Eye pound the nails into the machine, am liberated by free sounding and neologism...eye anew english shaping a moment's momentum, fragmEntirely, eye speak a temporary language."

I remember doing the Time Warp Drinking those moments when The blackness would hit me And the void would be calling...Let's do the Time Warp again #OTD in 1975 Rocky Horror Picture Show made its screen debut in London. We've often wondered what it would be like seeing that film for the first time in a world where it wasn't already a cult classic. Although we weren't there, we do have many, many RHPS fanzines sharing moviegoers first experiences alongside instructions and suggestions for audience participation and costume and prop creation.

We took a trip over to the one of our favorite isles containing our juvenile collection for #NationalBookDay. Each time we stop by we find new and wonderful things including these books about girls having adventures in Florida. "The Outdoor Girls in Florida" by Laura Lee Hope, 1913 is about a trip to the interior of an orange grove "where several unusual things happen." _____________________________ #specialcollections#librariesofinstagram#bookstagram#publishersbindingthursday#publishersbinding#Florida#juvenilefiction#libraryshelfie#rarebooks#ig_libraries#iglibraries
