On April 19, fellow MLIS candidate Janet and I took a road trip to Greenfield Village in order to take advantage of an interactive exhibit that they feature which would help us cement together concepts and ideas learned in LIS 7790: the Printing Office. I was fortunate enough to be able to actually print a document (a flyer, to be more precise) using the printing press!
