What's "Special" about the Special Collections Library?

Below are some previews to the items we will showcase on April 11th from 2:30 to 4:00 pm. Please drop by and get an inside look at some of our collections and special projects.

Rare book curator Sandy Stelts will show you some rare and unique children’s “flap books” also known as “metamorphoses” or “harlequinades” and also demonstrate how Penn State faculty are studying and digitizing them. 

University archivist Jackie Esposito will introduce you to the Penn State sports archives and explain how we preserve our athletic history. 

Huck chair and head of the special collections library Tim Pyatt will give you a preview of the newly acquired Chip Kidd collection, which includes everything from book jacket designs to nearly one terabyte of digital records. 

Staff will also be available to guide you through our new exhibit, “Challenge Yourself: Judy Chicago’s Studio Art Pedagogy.”
