For many years, library leaders in Minnesota have worked to create a distributed research collection in the state. In 2022, the state agency Minitex provided funding to support this effort, in what is called the Minnesota Shared Print Program. Twenty-four Minnesota libraries have joined together and are committed to retain over a half-million print books which are scarcely-held in Minnesota, which we are calling the Minnesota Shared Print Collection. Winona State’s share of this collection is about sixteen thousand titles. As we label the books, we have found interesting stories about our collection. Here are twenty stories from the Winona State share of the collection.

Story 1: Polymer Composites at WSU

Story 2: Boolean: AND, OR, ... NOT!

Story 3: Winona Normal School: the First Teacher’s College West of the Mississippi.

Story 4: Beer and Philosophy

Story 5: Retained Books versus Notable Books
