The UK Libraries Special Collections Research Center recently added the following collections and items to ExploreUK:

The E.F. Spears & Sons Hemp Records (dated 1886-1925) comprises correspondence and product and customer account information documenting the production, distribution, and development of hemp and hemp seed in the Bluegrass region of Kentucky (centered in Paris, Ky.). This collection was processed by Dominique Luster, one of SCRC’s former Learning Lab Interns.

Glass plate negative collection (dated 1887-1953, bulk 1898-1918) consists of dry plate, silver nitrate glass negatives, and depicts UK students, buildings, sports teams, clubs, and past university presidents.
