Special Collections on Twitter

If the full-length Special Collections blog posts are just too much for you, you can now get PPL Special Collections in 140-character chunks on Twitter:@TheSpecialest.

That'll be the place to get updates about our hours (like the fact that we're now open on Monday evenings), which Saturdays Special Collections will be open and quick snapshots of interesting items from the collections. It's also a convenient way to offer feedback, ask questions or make an appointment to use the collections, if you're so inclined.
