Welcome to the online exhibit of the Mary McDonald rare book and manuscript collection. Housed at Oregon State University, this site allows you to take a virtual tour of the collection.

When you arrive at the site you’ll find introductory text on the main page that will tell you about the collection, and then on the left side menu, you’ll find navigation. I suggest starting by clicking ¬†Introduction so you can learn all about Mary McDonald, her connection with Oregon Agricultural College, and the McDonal Room.

Or you can get started by visiting whichever section strikes your fancy. If you do that, pay attention to the links at the top of the page the loads because it will offer you links to more information within that category section.

As you browse be on the lookout for thumbnails throughout the exhibit. If you click on the image, you’ll be whisked to the item in the image’s page and from there you can click again to make the image full size. There’s a lot of really great pieces here and it’s nice to be able to see them in such detail.
