Take me to the archived exhibition.

The nearly 150 volumes comprising the Account Books and Ledgers collection in the Special Collections of the University of Delaware Library provide more than simply financial information about the businesses or individuals that maintained them. Readers can also learn about the day–to–day existence of the people whose names appear in the volumes, including their professions, what they ate, how they dressed, and where they lived or visited.

This single case exhibition was originally on display in the Morris Library Information Room from January 11- 30, 2013.
