Do you like the smell of books, or maybe even a library? Researchers are bottling the smell.

March 07, 2017

Researchers at the Morgan Library & Museum in New York are capturing the smell of its old books to reconstruct the building’s 1906 aroma.

An architect, a chemist, a neuroscientist, and other researchers are working to catch the scent of the Morgan Library & Museum.  The sense of smell engages people mentally, and the goal of the project is “to encourage students to think of historic spaces in a different way.”
