New Research From Beinecke Collections

September 14, 2019

By Nancy Kuhl

The books listed below are headed for the shelves in the “1963Room” at Beinecke Library. This beautiful conference room honors the founding of the library and celebrates the diverse scholarship supported by our collections.

We are always eager to help spread the word about new scholarship from our collections and we frequently post notices about books, articles, and conference presentations that have benefited from research in our reading room or using our online resources on our website.  Students, scholars, and fellows are invited and encouraged to let us know about new work drawn from the Beinecke Library’s collections.  Please send a citation, summary, and information about Beinecke collections consulted to: New Scholarship from Beinecke: Submissions.
