The lobby area outside Special Collections and Northen Auditorium on Lower Level 1 of Leyburn Library is inaccessible for most of this summer, due to a renovation project. (See this post .)
In addition to that, our Special Collections department is a bit “headless” for the next month. Tom Camden, Head of Special Collections and Archives, is in California to participate in a four-week seminar on “The Formation and Re-formation of the Book, 1450-1650” at the Huntington Library. Professor Camden was awarded one of sixteen National Endowment for the Humanities fellowships to attend this prestigious event.
In his absence, Special Collections continues to be open weekdays, with Senior Special Collections Assistant Seth McCormick-Goodhart overseeing daily operations. Professor Camden will be checking e-mail each day and will return to the office on Tuesday 18 July.
