Description:

The University of Toledo's Carlson Library has a large collection of Gypsy literature, and the University's commitment to Gypsy studies is documented in the "Introduction" section's "Vision Statement". Additionally, the "Introduction" provides a history of the study of gypsies, and how it always has been, and still is, fraught with debate. The "Photo Galleries" tab at the top of the page, features photos of Gypsy-Americans in Los Angeles taken by professional photographer Lyn Smith. There are also historic photos of Gypsy immigrants featured in Smith's eight set gallery entitled "Celebrations & Portraits". The "Videos" tab includes videos of Gypsies from around the world, including Las Vegas, Colombia, Hungary and a Belgrade suburb, where Gypsies convert Citroen and Dyana cars into "Mad Max-like" vehicles which they use to pick up "cardboard, bottles and scrap metal" to recycle for money.
