"Adirondack Perceptions: 200+ Years of Fiction Within the Blue Line" an exhibition and bibliography of Adirondack fiction from 1802 – 2014 by St Lawrence University student Fellow Jacqueline Colt is on display in the Special Collections Reading Room, Owen D. Young Library for the Fall 2014 semester.

This June and July senior Jacqueline Colt took Dorothy Plums' famous 1958 Adirondack Bibliography (with updates in 1966 and 1992) and brought it up to date, recording every work of Adirondack fiction she could document.

Working with Special Collections Librarian Mark McMurray the result is a 500 plus title bibliography of fiction within the Blue Line.

Additionally Jacqueline selected key works of Adirondack fiction which were on exhibit. Director of Digital Initiatives, Eric Williams-Bergen, collaborated with Jacqueline to create this digital database and exhibit of Adirondack fiction.
