Nunsense begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials.  The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth grade production of “Grease.”  Here we meet Reverend Mother Regina, a former circus performer; Sister Mary Hubert, the Mistress of Novices; a streetwise nun from Brooklyn named Sister Robert Anne; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is a wannabe ballerina; and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, the nun who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head.

ROBERT E. HOWARD, CREATOR OF CONAN THE BARBARIAN
August 14, 2014 – February 1, 2015
A writer of short fiction, Robert E. Howard would find readers in his hometown of Cross Plains, Texas as well as across the globe. Known primarily as the author of Conan the Barbarian, Howard wished most to be known as an author of historical fiction. His better-paying fantasy and high adventure fiction would overshadow that ambition. His writings span oil articles for the Cross Plains Review, correspondence with the likes of H. P. Lovecraft, and fictions—western, boxing, pulp, and, yes, sword & sorcery.
The Southwest Collection holdings include a comprehensive selection of his books, physical & digitized copies of his hometown newspaper, serials, and a growing collection of memorabilia from the annual Robert E. Howard Days in Cross Plains. His work is still represented in Hollywood films, comic books, podcasts, blogs, as well as both fan and research-based societies. This exhibit hopes to capture his diverse legacy
 
DR. SHERMAN VINOGRAD-MEDICAL SCIENCE DIRECTOR AT NASA
May 2014-September 2015
During the eighteen years that Dr. Vinograd served as NASA’s Director of Medical Science he led medical engineering and vehicle development research relating to manned space flight. Among his many accomplishments was the establishment of the in-flight Medial Experiments Program, which evaluated human responses to extended space flight in preparation for the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and Skylab manned space flight programs. His greatest achievement was conceptualizing, establishing, and chairing the Space Medicine Advisory Group (SPAMAG), which was charged with defining the earth-based and space-based research and life-support requirements for a manned orbiting research laboratory. This group proposed an orbiting laboratory designed according to the needs of future human flight crews which resulted in the creation of Skylab. Now on display at the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library through September 2015, is an exhibit containing books, photographs, artifacts, and medical and scientific reports. More information on this topic can be found in the Sherman P. Vinograd Papers.

SPECIAL EVENTS – NEW

TEXAS TECH UNIVERSITY SOUTHWEST COLLECTION/SPECIAL COLLECTIONS LIBRARY
The Texas Tech Dairy Barn: A Resilient Symbol of West Texas.|
The Texas Technological College Dairy Barn was constructed during 1926-27 and served as a teaching facility for 40 years.  The original facility was equipped to sanitarily produce whole milk and cream. The Department of Dairy Manufacturers was able to extend the milking room at the south end of the building due to proceeds from its sales and added butter, ice cream and cheese to its product line.
When the new college opened, agriculture students were allowed to bring their dairy cattle to reside in the barn.  The money earned by selling the milk to others and by working in the dairy facility helped pay for these students’ education.
The National Park Service approved of the barn's registry into the National Register of Historic places on April 2, 1992.  The Dairy Barn remains quite arguably one of the most recognized and beloved of all the buildings on the Texas Tech campus.
See the exhibit on display in the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library: October 2014-January 2015.

20. The Science Spectrum chose the prism as its logo because white light can be broken down into the colors of the rainbow, just like the field of science can be broken down into a spectrum of disciplines.
