Oregon Rare Books Initiative

I recently learned more about the Oregon Rare Books Initiative, a new project based at University of Oregon. The initiative seeks to "publicize the wonderful early print and manuscript collections of Knight Library at UO, to encourage their use in the classroom, and to stimulate an intellectual community gathered around the history of the book."

In 2013-2014, the initiative held seven events in University of Oregon's Knight Library, with speakers on a wide variety of topics in book history, including maps and travel literature, science and cookery, and early modern scholarship.

The last event of the season was held a couple weeks ago, but you can join ORBI's mailing list to learn more about their activities and future events.
