A Shout-Out to Special Collections

Inspired by the Library Company’s Visual Culture Program, researcher Abby Glogower arrived in the summer of 2012 with only a vague direction for her dissertation topic. Associate Curator of Prints & Photographs Erika Piola’s thoughtful introduction to the collections inspired her to curate “Nurturing Inquiry: Exploring Special Collections Research.” The exhibition examines the objects  in the University of Rochester Library’s Department of Rare Books and Special Collections and the related pieces of scholarly writing they helped produce.  Read more in the University of Rochester’s online journal Invisible Culture.
