Gov Docs in the Real World

My intent is to provide a place to document the progress we're making (or not making) in replacing the 3 million maps, aerial photographs, and government documents that were damaged or destroyed in the 2004 Hamilton Library flood.

This is why I love this job
Yuri found a most interesting volume of Report of the Superintendent of the U.S. Coast Survey for 1853. It seems that a previous owner had cut a hole in the book to create a hiding place for --?? A knife? Money? A lock of a sweetheart's hair? The volume shows no marks of ownership. It came to us from Ole Miss. Although the text has been destroyed, the nautical charts in the back are still usable (although some have knife cuts). If books could talk!
