The Royal Ontario Museum has again choosen Ristech's Book2Net Spirit scanner to allow students and staff to collect and study sometimes rare and irreplacable media in a virtually non-destructive manner.
Having had great success in the past, this time the H.H. Mu Far Eastern Library received a new Spirit LED. The H.H. Mu Far Eastern Library is a reference library; the collections are non-circulating. Library materials may be used either in the H.H. Mu Far Eastern Library or can be transferred to the ROM's Main Library for reading in that library.
The H.H. Mu Far Eastern Library was founded in 1933 by Bishop William C. White. Since that time it has been a major Canadian resource for researchers and others studying the arts and archaeology of Asia. The H.H. Mu Far Eastern Library is the most important library in Canada uniquely devoted to the arts of Asia.
The collections include books on the arts and archaeology of East Asia, South Asia, Central Asia, and Southeast Asia. The H.H. Mu Far Eastern Library also holds important research collections on the Near East, Ancient Egypt and West Asia.
The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) is among the world’s leading museums of natural history and world cultures. In combining a universal museum of cultures with that of natural history, the ROM offers an unusual breadth of experience to our audiences from around the world. We realize more acutely now that nature and humanity are intertwined, and the ROM offers many examples in its collections and programs of these fundamental relationships.
The ROM invites everyone to explore and enjoy extraordinary experiences of science and civilization at the Museum, online and through our various outreach programs. We strive to bring you insights into how the earth and its cultures have evolved, and how the changes we face today will shape the world we’ll live in tomorrow.
