On Display: Monmouth College Insect Collection

Currently on display in the Hewes Library's East Lobby display cases is a portion of the Monmouth College Insect Collections. Student Dusty Sanor spent most of her independent study recasing and organizing the collections. All of the specimens have been collected by former Monmouth College faculty and students.

In spring 2009, Sanor completed a full overhaul of the Insect Collections. She spent time restoring the original collections, labelling each insect, and repairing the damaged specimens. The collection will remain on display until the beginning of December.
