Rare Books and Manuscripts in Midwestern Collections
For this special symposium the organizers asked several curators of midwestern museums, archives, and university libraries to share information about understudied works in their collections that might be of interest to researchers in medieval and early modern European history. The curators also discussed significant new acquisitions and explained their strategy for acquiring rare book materials in an increasingly competitive market.
