On Friday, March 13th, we held a training event at Minitex for colleagues interested in learning about standardized rights statements and how to apply them. A small but engaged group joined us and together we reviewed the statements from rightsstatements.org and worked through examples from Minnesota Reflections and the University of Minnesota's collections. Our participants found that applying rights statements is often easier than you think!
The Minnesota Digital Library is excited to share a new contribution to our collection from Carleton College. Carleton has elected to share a collection of 61 weather diaries from their archives. Carleton students, faculty, and staff used the U.S. Army Signal Services Form #101 to record temperature, weather condition, and precipitation amounts for the station located at Carleton's first observatory in 1885. These diaries provide an intersting look at historic weather patterns in Northfield, Minnesota.
