      As you’ve probably heard, the University of Minnesota has an extremely large (over 60,000 items!) Sherlock Holmes collection. They claim to be the world’s largest. Unfortunately you can’t just go in and tour the library. As a librarian myself, I understand their archival concerns and (probably) budget woes.

      How awesome does that sound? I’d love to go stare at it.
