The Newberry - Chicago's Independent Research Library Since 1887
  • Curt Teich Postcard Archives Now Open to Readers

    The Curt Teich Postcard Archives Collection, acquired last fall, is now open to Newberry readers in our reading rooms (by appointment only at this time). Researchers can consult Newberry staff and a range of resources to learn about—and gain access to—the 500,000 unique postcards in the collection.

  • A new NEH grant will enable the Newberry to welcome more scholars into its community of learning, providing them with the resources for finding important historical documents and sharing their discoveries through publications, digital projects, and public lectures.

  • “Shelf Life” is a podcast about the humanities–and the humans behind them. Each episode features a new conversation with the Newberry staff, fellows, and other readers who bring our world-famous collection to life. We hope you’ll subscribe via iTunes or listen on our website as we release a new episode every three weeks!
