Rust, Joseph Cornell and Zines

I was looking at the CLIR site on Cataloging Hidden Collections and found this cycles grant applicants: none of whom have been awarded anything yet.  It looks exciting!

Purdue University Arthur Herbarium
More to come, but this is a library of plant rusts!
I emailed them today (9/18/09) to find the contact for cataloging questions.

Wonderland: The Joseph Cornell Study Center Collection.
This is a library at the Smithsonian of Joseph Cornell's source materials and private library: he's one of my favorite artists.
No url, but I'm going to email the curator tomorrow and see how she does it.
Note to self: always save the url of places you stumble upon because you may never find them again, even after searching for an hour.
Additional note to self: re-read your blog before getting lost looking for something.  I looked up and saw CLIR and Cataloging Hidden Collections and said, DUH...because that is where I found the Joseph Cornell Wonderland.
Emailed Caroline Hennessey 9/18/09 while canning tomatoes from the garden, which yes, I have yet to catalog.
