With all the summer camps on campus and the kids walking around campus while playing Pokémon Go, we thought now would be a good time to highlight some of the comics in our collections that relate to kids.
The Janice Bluestein Longone Culinary Archive (JBLCA) at the University of Michigan Special Collections Library documents American culinary history, defined broadly to include both influences upon American foodways and the influence of American culinary practices elsewhere. The recent acquisition of a small cookbook collection formerly belonging to Colonel Karnig “Carl” Mahakian (1926-2015) contributes to JBLCA's strength in immigrant culinary traditions and charity cookbooks.
Have you noticed more people than usual walking around town while looking at their phones? This is thanks to last week’s U.S. release of Pokémon Go.

In this mystery set in ancient Rome, private informer Flavia Albia is called to the scene when a dead body is found in a chest which is being put up for auction. At the same time, she helps the man she loves, Manlius Faustus, with his friend's political campaign. When a second body turns up in the chest, she realizes there might be a connection between the murders and the election.
We have several new games in the CVGA (and yes, Overwatch is among them). Since we got several new dance games, we thought we'd highlight them here for your viewing pleasure. If you haven't gotten a chance to try out a dance game, now you have four additional choices to choose from and get started!
We have a new book display called "The Heat Is On," which highlights books that focus on Summer, the sun, and heat (appropriate considering the weather we've been having, no?) Books included cover everything from using sunlight in architecture to books giving introductions to the fundamentals of heat transfer. You can check out the display on the 2nd floor of the Duderstadt Center. Enjoy!
