Special Collections staff are starting to pack for the move to the second level of Billings Library.
Our digital collections have moved! After 10 years of delivering content through a system designed and built by Center for Digital Initiatives staff, we have migrated into a new platform. Islandora, built and maintained by an international community, allows us to introduce some exciting new features.
2018 marks the year we leave our quarters in Bailey/Howe Library and take up residence in the historic Billings Library. We will be closed from July 9-August 5 for moving. We plan to reopen in Billings on August 6. Check here for construction updates and photos. Read our May update now.
Special Collections and University Archives will be closed from July 9-August 5 to make the move to our new quarters in the Billings Library at 48 University Place. Although our collections will not be available during this time, we will be happy to answer questions via email or phone.
On August 27, Sylvain Piron, from the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales in Paris, will open the 2018-2019 College of Arts and Sciences Medieval Studies Lecture Series with his presentation "Why Studying the Middle Ages Matters in the Age of Global Warming."
The spring semester exhibit in Special Collections features a selection of books from the Arion Press. Made mostly by hand under the direction of publisher Andrew Hoyem, the books have been described as “marvels to behold and a pleasure to touch.”
For the second Stories from the Stacks presentation this spring, UVM English professor Libby Miles will talk about two Abenaki community cookbooks that demonstrate strategies of survivance (survival + resistance). April 5 at 5:30 in Special Collections.
On March 7 at 6 pm, UVM Geography Professor Meghan Cope opens our new series, "Stories from the Stacks." Cope's research using the records of a longtime institution of care in Burlington provides important insights into the social construction of childhood and its lived realty.
