Students in Professor Germek's "The Story of the Book" class went on the road last week to visit the Morgan Library and Museum in New York City. While there, they were treated to a presentation on medieval manuscripts given by Roger Wieck—an authority on medieval Books of Hours and head of the medieval and renaissance manuscripts department at the Morgan.
A newly expanded and revised 318-page special collections catalog is now available for your perusal. The catalog lists all things present in MU Library's Special Collections, including medieval manuscripts, rare books, and The Lewis Mumford Collection.
In celebration of all things “library” please check out our cool display currently residing in the library foyer. The display is comprised of two amazing library dioramas created by Vivian Parkin DeRosa, Daughter of Professors Katherine Parkin and Christopher DeRosa and research on Carnegie libraries currently being done by MU librarian Eleonora Dubicki.
