KenCat Access to Scrapbooks at Kentucky Library

Imagine seeing your grandparent’s calling card for the first time, or finding an obituary of a long lost relative. Visualize a world event through the eyes of an adolescent. Over 280 scrapbooks in the Kentucky Library and Museum allow such opportunities. Sue Lynn McDaniel, Special Collections Librarian, with the assistance of volunteer Ekaterina Myakshina, are creating KenCat records for scrapbooks on school memories, travels, genealogy, and simple scraps. Just yesterday, researchers came to our Harrison-Baird Reading Room in search of a scrapbook that KenCat taught them about. Check out our scrapbooks via the University Libraries homepage by clicking on the KenCat navigation tab and searching the word “scrapbooks”.
