Do you follow The Huntington on Tumblr? If you do, then you’re one of the thousands who joined since we launched our site exactly one year ago today.

If you don’t follow us, take some time today to browse through our archive. There you’ll find some of our favorites, including animated GIFs of an extra-illustrated book, a gallery guide from a recent exhibition, and one of the koi enjoying the waters in our Japanese Garden.

Through our Tumblr, we have been engaging new audiences, connecting with other institutions in some unexpected ways, and finding exciting new ways to explore our collections.

Today is also Thursday, which means we also posted our weekly Squint on Tumblr. These posts feature snapshots of small, obscure Huntington details that catch our eye.

So please join us on Tumblr as we move into our second year—later today we’ll mark the arrival of the vernal equinox. And the posts will just keep on coming.

We also invite you to follow us on Facebook and Twitter and visit our sites on Flickr, Vimeo, YouTube, and iTunes U.

Matt Stevens is editor of Verso and Huntington Frontiers magazine.
