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.
Howe Library, Dana Medical Library, and Silver Special Collections Library buildings are closed, but essential services remain available, including research assistance, reference help, instructional services, and scanning and document delivery service. Check the Howe Library website, Dana Medical Library website, and Silver Special Collections Library website for additional information.
UVM affiliates working on academic and/or research projects may pick up Howe Library books, Dana Medical Library books, DVDs, and media equipment by appointment using curbside service.
For Presidents Day, Special Collections is featuring what librarian John Buechler valued as one of our major holdings, a copy of Royall Tyler's comedy The Contrast, with President George Washington's "bold, clear signature" on the title page.
Silver Special Collections recently acquired four tickets for the 1868 Senate impeachment trial of President Andrew Johnson.
Silver Special Collections will close at 5:00 pm on Wednesday, November 20, 2019.
