The Newberry is marking the centennial of the start of World War I with two linked exhibitions and a series of related public programs.
The Genealogy and Local History staff will introduce visitors to the Newberry and explain how to use its collections at an informal orientation. Aimed at researchers new to the library and/or new to genealogical research, this session will last approximately an hour, followed by a short tour of the library.
The history of information and information management is a relatively new field for historians and as such has tremendous potential for enhancing our understanding of many historical events, trends, and innovations.
Gustav Mahler’s professional commitments as both composer and conductor are amply reflected by contemporary music scores in the Newberry Library’s holdings.
Love comes in all shapes and sizes, spanning the centuries and the globe – especially when expressed on paper. That’s precisely why the Newberry’s Love on Paper displays such an eclectic array of collection items, ranging from proclamations and pictures to cynical put-downs and comical send-ups of love.
