Best Library Collections, April 2009
 
To revisit Jesse Owens’s victory over the Nazis or Peggy Fleming’s golden spins across the ice, check out the Olympic Games collection at the LA84 Foundation Sports Library, which maintains official reports of events since 1896 and many bid documents from host-city hopefuls (turns out that Beijing presented its summer 2008 plans in a corrugated box). There are also about 100 oral histories by Southern California Olympians, including basketball great Jerry West, who won gold in 1960.
