Set on the 3rd Floor, the rare collections explorer seeks to promote the use of archival materials for research purposes by students and visitors, make that material accessible, and utilize the expert staff of the library to help provide them with topic specialists. Visitors are encouraged to explore extensive content from the special collections through galleries, timelines, a book reader and a 3D object explorer. With its large scale up to six users can explore concurrently. To improve accessibility, the entire interface can also be moved up or down the screen array. Examples of collections at launch included the George Romero archives, exploration of the Silk Road, and discovery of the history of Noh theatre in beautifully rendered woodblock prints.
