Welcome to the Ingalls Library & Museum Archives!
If you didn't act quickly, you probably missed out on tickets to TEDxCLE in the museum's Gartner Auditorium. The event is so popular that the talks are simulcast in the museum's lecture halls. TED, which stands for Technology Education and Design, is an annual international conference of ideas. The TEDx franchise is an extension of TED at a local level. Hence we have TEDxCLE. Now you know to buy tickets early next year. In the meantime, the Cleveland Museum of Teds is open and tickets are free. Our tour of Teds starts in Gallery 105, in the lower level of the 1916 building.
The Ingalls Library contains a vast hidden collection of personal bookplates, uncataloged and unknown. These ex libris reside in the books in the library stacks, evidence of the remarkable provenance of the collection, waiting to be discovered by the curious patron.
At the end of the 19th century, a craze for all things Japanese spread across the Western world.
