New Online Guide to the Beinecke’s Postwar Culture Collection

September 4, 2014

The Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library is pleased to announce the launching of a new web portal to guide students, scholars, creative writers, and artists through its extensive Postwar Culture Collection. 
The Postwar Culture Collection covers artistic, literary, social, political, and philosophic developments in Europe and America between 1945 and 1989. Ranging from single pieces to entire archives of prominent figures of the period, these rich and disparate holdings form a unique resource for exploring the work of creative individuals, movements, and transnational networks that reshaped cultural landscapes both “high” and “low” after the Second World War. 
The Postwar Culture Web Portal directs users to broad areas of strength in the collection, provides details for finding and using specific holdings of print and archival material, and offers information on additional resources as well as activities of the affiliated Postwar Culture Working Group at Yale. 
We hope you will join us in exploring this new and still largely unexplored terrain by visiting
