"B" movies are low-budget films, often made to accompany the main attraction in a double feature (two movies for the price of one). Fans love these films for their lurid melodrama, scandalous content for their time, campy humor, unintended comedy, and sometimes surprisingly good production values.
Chambers Library is celebrating B Movies with "The Golden Age of Hollywood 'B' Movies," an exhibit of lobby cards, small posters that were placed in movie theatre lobbies. The exhibit will open Thursday, April 13, with a presentation by Dr. John Springer, UCO Professor and Director of UCO's Film Studies Program, from 2:30 to 3:30pm on the library's first floor. Refreshments will be served.
The lobby card collection is part of the Bob Burke Film & Television Autograph Collection. Bob Burke is an author, attorney, historian, and a collector of autographs. This exhibit is drawn from his extensive collection in Chambers Library's Archives & Special Collections.

Virginia Company Archives contains manuscripts, printed material, and an image gallery of items associated with the Virginia Company of London, from mid-16th to early 17th centuries.
This online project presents those Ferrar Papers which are in Magdalene College, Cambridge. In addition, transcripts of those documents that throw light on the Virginia Company of London are included, as are the four volumes of The Records of the Virginia Company of London (Washington, D.C., 1906-35), edited by Susan Myra Kingsbury. The edition does not at present include those items which were once part of the collection but are so no longer; nor does it record any of those volumes from the Ferrars' library which are to be found in the Old Library at Magdalene.
