In celebration of Halloween, the University of Chicago Library has created a research guide that provides a lighthearted, yet informative look at some of the scary resources available to UChicago students.
A few of the featured items in this Halloween guide include:
- books on black cats in art and the social history of ghosts;
- scary movies from Nosferatu (1922) to the Amityville Horror (2005);
- a plethora of pumpkin recipes;
- resources on haunted Chicago and UChicago archival Halloween photographs;
- legal and historical resources on the Salem Witch Trials; and
- scary government information, including a Center for Disease Control and Prevention graphic novel called Preparedness 101: Zombie Pandemic.
