October is notable for the Halloween holiday and for celebrating it by wearing costumes. Laura Coleman of Access Services has put together a display of historical, theatrical, and cultural books exploring the use of costumes. Whether you are looking for an impressive Halloween costume idea, planning for a theater production, or just interested in fashion, the library has something for you. Check out these resources:
And be sure and check out the Curriculum Resource Collection for fun Halloween books.
Don’t forget about the ghost in the Communication building named Dinah. Read about her in Haunted colleges and universities: creepy campuses, scary scholars, and deadly dorms or search for stories about her ghost in Special Collections and Archives.
Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
