Content Roundup – First and Second Weeks – July 2013.


This week brings another episode of Mittie’s Storytime as we hear further revelations from the ongoing reading of Bride of the Tomb. As well, sit back and enjoy another 8 cassettes of audio interviews between Dime Novel scholars Eddie LeBlanc and Lydia Schurman. More Dime Novel reading fun continues with the Steam Men Bibliography – a work-in-progress to identify literary citations to early robots and steam men, women, and animals! A number of new Non-Fiction popular culture titles are also making their first digital appearance. Work, also commenced on the Father Thomas Middleton Papers, which we are proud to make available. Father Thomas was former President of Villanova College, and Librarian of the College, as well as the founder of the American Catholic Historical Society.
