Content Roundup – First and Second weeks – February 2019

Book of startling information.

This week we conclude the digitization of the “Guide to Catholic Literature” and add a volume to the Catholic Periodical Index to those available for scholarly use. As well this week also features more Dime Novels and story paper issues – including two titles from the rare “Multum in Parvo Library” donated to the collection from the State of Nebraska. Finally take a look at a set of 6 stereograms featuring photographs of now-Villanova Inn (then know as the Montrose Mansion).
