On June 19, a moving company transported the Marlboro College archives from Marlboro's Rice-Aron Library to UVM's Silver Special Collection Library.
Silver Special Collections encourages UVM students, faculty, staff and alumni to share your COVID-19 experiences for the University Archives.
During the COVID-19 crisis, many publishers are temporarily opening up access to their online research resources. The UVM Libraries are working to provide trials to select resources and to expand access to some of our current online holdings for UVM affiliates, as well as promoting open access resources. Together, these resources provide access to a large number of the books on our physical shelves.
Though the UVM Libraries remain closed to in-person visitors, all borrowed books and DVDs may be returned using the Howe Library book drop. Borrowed media equipment may be returned to Howe Library by appointment, using our socially distanced curbside service. Please do not leave materials unattended outside library buildings.
The current exhibit in Silver Special Collections, "Work of Art: Dancing Together in Vermont," examines the process involved in creating diverse dance communities.
On March 4, Julian Barnett, artist-in-residence in UVM's Department of Theater and Dance, will give a performance/lecture highlighting his most recent professional work, shedding light on multicultural processes and contexts, and examining the role vulnerability has played in his choreographic life.
Join us as we celebrate the launch of a new book by Stephen Terry and student research assistant Louis Augeri.
Fleming Museum curator Alice Boone curated the new Special Collections exhibit, “Archives of Activism.” Drawing from documents and ephemera produced by students, faculty, and administrators, the exhibit focuses on anti-war and related protests during the late 1960s, the call for divestment from apartheid-era South Africa in 1985, and the occupations and protests of 1988 and 1991.
On November 20 at 5:30 pm, Laura Light will talk about the Paris Bible as part of the 2019-2020 College of Arts and Sciences Medieval Studies Lecture Series.
The #UVM Libraries now provides online access to the Burlington Free Press Archive 1878-2007 for UVM students, faculty and staff. For #TBT, we searched for news about the 1954 election of Vermont's first female lieutenant governor, Consuelo Northrop Bailey. To read the full story about the politician and "housewife too" published on Nov. 4, 1954, look for the Burlington Free Press Archive in our Research Databases list. #uvmlibraries
