Current Research

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.

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 by following this link: New Scholarship from Beinecke: Submissions.
