Syracuse Expands “Plastics” Website

Last year we mentioned Syracuse University Library's "Plastics" collection. The library has recently launched a newly redesigned and expanded version of the website, which now offers approximately 3,000 objects with high-quality photographs, information about plastic materials and processes, and twice the previous number of biographies and company histories. In addition to the resources just listed, one can also find essays on specific topics, such as "Racism, Stereotype, and Plastic Product Premiums." Viewers can now submit additional information about objects, people, and companies through the site.
