WDIV in Detroit did a marvelous profile of the Vincent Voice Library on Friday evening!
The piece includes sound bites from poet Robert Frost, boxer Joe Louis, baseball player Ty Cobb, showman Buffalo Bill Cody, and President Theodore Roosevelt - the latter being one of the first voices Robert Vincent ever recorded, in 1912.
There's also a great shot of our Edison Standard Phonograph, in perfect working order more than 100 years after it was manufactured.
We're pleased to announce the publication of Speak Out! The MSU Student Anthology on Civil and Human Rights.
Speak Out! is one of the library's contributions to Project 60/50, MSU's year-long conversation on civil and human rights. Along with the anthology, we've also been an active participant with films, musical performances, and exhibits on relevant resources in our collection.
In the anthology, five student authors reflect on difficult questions and moments in history that have moved, angered, or challenged them:
• Elizabeth Gil, Painting a Fuller Portrait: An Open Letter
• Kyle Goldstein, When is Censorship Justified?
• Sam Mather, Torture and Human Rights
• Kenneth J. Williams Jr., Racial Equality is a Myth!
• Connor Yeck, Eight Moments at Shima Hospital

The five 1860s cookbooks it discusses are all from the MSU Libraries' Cookery & Food Collection. Food in the Civil War Era: The North is the first in an 11-volume series Veit will edit for the MSU Press.
MSU Libraries' Special Collections are also working with Veit on a digital archive and interactive website, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, on American cooking during the Great Depression. Learn more in the May issue of Insight.
The MSU Libraries' new 3D printing service was profiled in the State News! Read the article and watch the video.
3D printing is available for students, faculty, and the public, at the Main Library Copy Center on 2 East.
A 3D printer builds three-dimensional objects one micro-thin layer at a time, with different printers using metal alloys, thermoplastics, or photopolymers. The printer in the Main Library uses an environmentally friendly bioplastic made from corn.
The MSU Libraries' implementation of SearchPlus is covered in an article on Library Journal's technology site, The Digital Shift.
SearchPlus is a multidisciplinary research tool which offers a single entry point for most of the library's licensed online resources and the library catalog. Read more about SearchPlus here, or start searching now!
