CoRaL Visual Resource Collection

In addition to utilizing the collections that already exist on campus, CoRaL couldĀ generate its own visual resource collection. Natural objects such as skeletons, insects, and herbarium collections would be accessible alongside mechanical apparatus and wood joinery samples. Certain objects in the collection could be lent to faculty, staff, and students in a manner similar to the library’s circulation.


List of potential objects for consideration in the development of the visual resource collection:

  • Biological specimens
  • Antiquated technologies
  • Textiles
  • Wood joinery samples
  • Pigment collection
  • Mineral collection
  • Ancient tools
  • Modern furniture
  • Prosthetics
  • Jewelry
  • Electronics
  • Engines
  • Geometric models
