New Library Exhibit: Under the Microscope

Musselman Library has a new exhibit on the ground floor. “Under the Microscope” was curated by Kendall Wright ’18, a Biology and French major. The exhibit includes images that were developed over the decades by Gettysburg College students using electron microscopes. Kendall enlisted the help of retired Biology Professor Ralph Cavaliere to locate and identify the photographs, which were stored in the Science Center, and Health Sciences Professor Emily Besecker to help caption the photos. Kendall hopes that these strange, fascinating and oddly beautiful images will inspire a new generation of Gettysburg students.

In addition to the images, Kendall selected books and articles from Musselman Library’s collection to create a book display entitled “Microbes and Man.” Feel free to check out the materials and learn more how our lives are intertwined with microbiology.

The exhibit and book display will be remain on the ground floor through June 15, 2018.

Fair Use Week in Musselman Library

Stop by the main floor of Musselman Library during Fair Use Week, February 26-March 2, and think about how Fair Use factors into the music you listen to or the photos you post to Instagram. Is it legal for Drake to use a copyrighted clip from another musician in his own track? Or for an artist to take random selfies from peoples’ social media, comment on them and sell them for monetary gain?

Come engage with the Fair Use display to explore how the four factors of Fair Use may impact cases like these as well as your daily lives.
