Supplementary Data SD1. Representative list of popular press (i.e., online publications) documenting the importance of collections in recent years (with the most recent publication listed at the top). Publication date, site, and author(s) are given, if known. Article titles are linked directly to the publication; independent URLs also are given. If a URL does not work, simply google the title of the article for full access. This list is by no means exhaustive; there certainly many other articles and blogs available stressing the importance of collections. A truncated version of this list, highlighting more significant publications, is shown in Table 2 and an up-to-date list is maintained on the website of J.E. Light (https://www.jessicalight.org/).
