We are very excited to re-launch online our open houses in the Special Collections Research Center! As part of the After Hours series, we have arranged an extraordinary line-up of events for the Winter Semester. Before the pandemic, on the second Tuesday of each month during the academic year, we organized physical displays of themed selections from our collections. Now we are committed to continue this tradition of open houses in the virtual world. All are welcome to join us from the comfort of your home or office to chat with a curator and learn about our collections.
Our first virtual open house of the year 2021 will take place on January 10 at 4:00 pm: "Recent Acquisitions of Manuscripts and Rare Books" will be a unique opportunity to know about our latest purchases of manuscripts and early printed books in various collecting areas at Special Collections, including medieval manuscripts, books printed in the fifteenth century (incunables), early medical books, and pamphlets and broadsides illustrating the political and religious upheavals in the Low Countries (Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg) throughout the seventeenth century. Please register by completing this form.
Date & Time: Tuesday, January 12, 2021 - 4:00-5:00 pm
Location: the comfort of your home or office
The registration is limited to a maximum of 60 participants.
Upon registration you will receive the zoom invitation on the evening before the event.
