News Stories

The Jack and Shirley Silver Special Collections Library is now open in the Billings Library at 48 University Place.

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 19 for moving. We plan to reopen in Billings on August 20. Check here for construction updates and photos. Read our July updates now.

Enabling researchers to make use of our collections is one of Special Collections’ primary goals. Recently, we took an important step to assist researchers by joining the New England Regional Fellowship Consortium. Special Collections looks forward to welcoming NERFC fellows in 2019.

Events

On September 27, David Lustgarten, associate professor in the Division of Communication and Creative Media at Champlain College, will help celebrate the opening of the Jack and Shirley Silver Special Collections Library with his presentation, "A Book, a Building, and the Future of Our World."

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."

Special Collections and University Archives will be closed from July 9-August 19 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.

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.

A gem in the #danamedicallibrary Medical History Collection is this book published in 1595. It is the oldest book in our collection, was written by Brice Bauderon, an “expert physician”, and lists medicines for inner and outer treatments of the human body. It is bound in calf, rubbed and rebacked, sustaining some damage over time but is in remarkably good condition. Originally written in French, it was translated into German. #uvmlibraries #oldbooks #booksofinstragram #librariesofinstagram
