Marietta College News

Marietta College’s Legacy Library is hosting an exhibit entitled: Ohio Pioneers: “From such beginnings, much may be expected.”  The focus of the exhibit will be on the initial expansion of the country from the original states into the “old Northwest” with the establishment of Marietta, the “first permanent settlement in the territory northwest of the Ohio.”  Inspired by the publication of David McCullough’s new book, The Pioneers, the exhibit presents historical documents and artwork from the Library’s Special Collections and will run through October 15th.

Katy Scullin has joined the staff of the Legacy Library as Special Collections Librarian in March.  She will be responsible for overall management of the library’s special collections and archives and will lead in the development of a digitization program.  Katy was most recently employed at the Ohio State University where she served as Archival Description Project Coordinator.

Susie Scott joined the staff in December as Evening Reference Assistant.  Most recently she was a Library-Media Specialist at Shenandoah High School in the Noble Local School District.
