Melbourne Museum of Printing

Just found out that this place exists today. Had a quick browse through the website and it looks like they have a HUGE collection of print related materials including a library of "books as artifacts". I wonder how these would be catalogued?

Also interesting to note is the spelling of "font". Apparently this is the American spelling, and the English is actually "fount". Those Americans really must have something against the letter U!

The Facebook page for the museum is a little out of date but I love the logo they came up with.

Opening hours are 2pm - 5pm on Thursday and Sunday. Will try to stop by over the weekend!

A few links...

Here is the link to our class blog for webpage design 2014:

We also looked at the ALIA Library Technicians Group and ALIA Social Media  Facebook pages this morning.
