Turning the Pages (TTP) allows users to interactively flip through and learn more about materials from UAB Libraries. View some of our colorful Incunabula from the pre-1500s, or get a close up look at a letter written by George Washington to his dentist. These materials and others are now available to virtually explore. This innovative platform creates a safe environment for materials, and offers a more hands on experience for users. View these items on any web browser or on a 55" touchscreen kiosk located on the first floor of Lister Hill Library.
