Featured This Month: Railroads
The Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad (CB&Q) was one of the largest and most significant railroads in the United States, controlling transportation over much of the nation between the Rockies and the Mississippi River. This gallery features images of materials from the CB&Q Archives - letters, reports, photographs, maps, drawings, posters, and more - relating to these and other subject areas and topics. It is intended to introduce researchers to the collection’s diverse content and to direct them to relevant materials via links to the online inventory. Essentially, the gallery serves as a visual subject index to the records.
In an effort to make the Popol Vuh more widely available and reduce non-essential handling of the text, the Newberry has worked with Ohio State University to make this invaluable text available through this online resource.
In this exhibition you will see a small sample of rare and special books on religion, published from the thirteenth to the nineteenth centuries that the Newberry collected over the last two decades.
