About this blog


The “Off the Shelf” blog, authored by the Norwick Center for Digital Solutions (nCDS), provides information on the rare photographs, manuscripts, imprints, works of art, audio-visual materials, and ephemera uploaded into SMU Libraries Digital Collections each month.

nCDS is working to digitize the extensive special collections holdings of the SMU Libraries and make them freely available over the Internet on the SMU Libraries Digital Collections web site. SMU Libraries Digital Collections include strong concentrations in Texas history and art, the U.S. Southwest and West, Mexico, railroads, Civil War, World War II, SMU history, theology, and more.
