Digital Screener Training Collection |  Enjoy this "Who's Hoot" collection about owls at the Smithsonian.  The first part of the collection contains many Smithsonian Terms of Use Violations. I've put them there on purpose to alert screeners to the kinds of violations they might encounter while screening collections in the Learning Lab. The second part contains primary source photographs, newspaper articles, and Secretarial correspondence about some of the wisest Smithsonian inhabitants--owls who lived in the Smithsonian Institution Building ("The Castle"). Explore the stories of Alex and Athena--named for the Greek goddess of Wisdom; as well as "Increase" and "Diffusion" named for the Smithsonian's original mandate to create and spread knowledge.
