#YAH Asks: “What’s the Rare Books Room?”

University Archivist Mr. David Crawford explains that “The Rare Books Room, as the public space for our archival, rare books and special collections, offers access to books and other artifacts related to a variety of subjects from different cultures and from different time periods.” By bringing together and offering such access to materials and books with vastly different origins and histories, the Rare Books Room presents an interdisciplinary space that lends itself to a re-examination of the ways in which texts, and artifacts, interact with one another.
