An Optical Adventure

And the metal for the first class visit to the new facilities goes to...
Sarah Hamill's History of Photography Class!

Sarah's class came to Special Collections on Tuesday, September 11, 2012 to learn about (and play with) some of our optical toys.  Special Collections Librarian, Ed Vermue, has only just begun adding optical toys to our holdings over the past year or two, but we already have quite a collection!  

The class spent half the time listening to a lecture in the new classroom (Sarah also gets the award for being the first faculty member to use our new television and overhead camera) and the other half experiencing the optical toys in a hands-on setting.

Ed gave some background information for each object, along with instructions on how to operate them...

 ... and then it was time to get down to the serious business of playing.
