As a research library we have materials in our collections in a variety of subject areas that may keep you from screaming for ice cream.

Or you can watch a 15 minute video from Academic Video Online about the development of a new designer Ice Cream, check out a book of poetry, Ingestion of ice-cream, and other poems, or take a medical perspective and learn about Ice cream headaches.
