Most institutions keep records of their various activities, and university libraries are no different. Columbia University's Library published its in-house "Columbia Library Columns" from 1951 to 1996. Over the years it was edited by several people, including Kenneth A. Lohf, Jean Ashton, and Michael Stoller. This remarkable archive brings together the entire run; all told, it includes 135 issues and 6,900 pages. Visitors can browse the table of contents, peruse a list of all the volumes, and also perform a detailed keyword search. The Selected Articles of Interest collection brings together some of the most compelling offerings, such as "The John Jay Papers," "Instructing Women: Conduct Books in the Plimpton Library," and a rather intriguing piece from 1978 titled "The Library of the Future Has Books."
