In Focus

Illustration from The Song of Songs (Book Club of California, 1922)

Exhibition on view September 28, 2015 – February 19, 2016

The Song of Songs, also known as the Song of Solomon or Canticles, is a book of the Bible that is more lyrical than other parts of the Bible, containing poems about love.  For over a century, modern fine printers have been inspired by these expressions of joy and pain, producing beautiful editions that celebrate this classical text through a high level of craft, deluxe materials, illustration, and typography.  This exhibition shows examples from Arts Library Special Collections and the Divinity Library that demonstrate a range of approaches in design, printing, and illustration.

November, from the Tres Riches Heures du Duc de Berry

Although the Robert B. Haas Family Arts Library will close at 5 pm this Wednesday, November 25th and reopen at 2 pm on Sunday, November 29th (for more details, see the building hours page), Yale affiliates still have access to all of our electronic resources during November recess. You can find Arts-specific databases on the Arts Databases page and many others in the A-Z databases list. Don't forget that you can also search for eJournals by title. Many E-books can be accessed through Quicksearch, our new online search that combines Orbis and Morris records.

If you are traveling off-campus for the break, you'll need to connect to the Yale network via VPN to access these resources. There have been a few changes to this process since Multifactor Authentication (MFA) was implemented this semester. For help, see this guide to logging in to CAS from off-campus and the Yale ITS page about Multifactor Authentication.
