The Mosasaurs are coming to Olin!

Professor Ellen Thomas received a grant (thanks in part to the library’s willingness to host the table in a student-centered space) from the Paleontological Society to construct a display-study table for permanent use in the Campbell Room. This table will house our Ward’s cast of the skull of a Mosasaurus hoffmanni Mantell, displayed within the table under a glass cover. The exhibit will be announced campus-wide through student-designed posters and social media, including a QR code affixed on the table.

The table will be designed and constructed both to complement the existing tables and to showcase the cast.  Delivery is expected sometime in late winter 2020.
