The Rare Book Collection’s homepage is back! The completely redesigned Rare Books website is up and running at:
On the homepage you will find a brief overview of the collection, hours, and contact information. The menu on the left of the screen provides links to more detailed collection descriptions, our ever-growing Flickr site, digital projects, research tools, visitor information, and even a video tour. The site will always be a work in progress, so your comments and suggestions are always welcome.
The Rare Books website is one of the many outstanding contributions of our 2013-14 Rare Book Fellow, Ryan Greenwood. His nine-month fellowship ended on May 15. I am delighted to report that Ryan is headed to the University of Minnesota Law Library, where he will be their new Rare Book Librarian, beginning in July. Congratulations, Ryan!
