Human Behavior (10/14/20)

Today we’re delving into human behavior with an investigation into a rare type of books, recognizing manipulation in work and relationships, and what qualities it takes to be a leader.

DARK ARCHIVES: A Librarian’s Investigation into the Science and History of Books Bound in Human Skin by Megan Rosenbloom

“While the idea of anthropodermic books, or books bound in human skin, may conjure images of serial killers toiling in underground lairs, Rosenbloom (collections strategies librarian, Univ. of California Los Angeles) shows that the truth is both more mundane and more sinister…Essential for most libraries, especially where books about medical history and material culture circulate well.”–Library Journal, starred review
