After over 12 years of sharing archive and rare book content on this blog, we are officially retiring it. It’s not going anywhere anytime soon, however — we’re leaving the content here for the time being so you can continue to explore it.
Thanks to Jessica Lacher-Feldman for starting (and naming!) the blog, all the way back in October 2007. No one could match her enthusiasm for sharing cool stuff from the stacks.
Thanks also to Amy Chen, who took charge in 2012. And I mean really took charge: the meticulous and helpful categorization system you see here was put in place by Amy and her graduate assistant, Ashley Bond.
I was handed the reins in 2015. Before that, I ran the digitization unit’s blog — you’ll find those posts archived here as well. Thanks to Amanda Presnell for running that blog from its inception in April 2011 to August 2012, when I took over.
And special thanks to the Special Collections faculty and staff who contributed their favorite items and fond memories over the years!
