Exhibited on a 55" touchscreen kiosk located on the first floor of Lister Hill Library, TTP allows users to interactively turn the pages and learn more about materials from UAB Libraries. Flip through some of our colorful Incunabula from the pre-1500s, or get a close up view of a letter written by George Washington to his dentist. These materials and others are now available to virtually explore. This innovative platform creates a safe environment for materials, and offers a more hands on experience for users. Come check it out today!
