"The Artist and the Garden" now on view at the Arts Library

The garden is often thought of as a place of tranquility and repose. With the cycle of growth and the seasons, it is also a place of creativity and renewal. A myriad of shapes, colors, textures, sounds, and smells offer inspiration to the artist. The book arts also offer myriad options for an artist to express their engagement with the garden. Along with the traditional codex, miniature, folio, and interactive non-codex formats, as well as colorful illustrations and typographic interpretations transport the reader to this place of beauty and wonder.

Program extending library hours continued for second year

A pilot program to extend hours at Sterling Memorial Library and Bass Library has been continued for another year – a result of requests from the leaders of the Graduate Student Assembly and the Graduate and Professional Student Senate, who highlighted the increasing demand for library spaces to remain open later. During the summer, SML will stay open later on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings, while late night hours on Thursdays in SML will continue as usual.

Curator Olivia Armandroff (Berkeley College ‘17) focuses her research on the career and artistic output of William Fowler Hopson (1849-1935), a New Haven-based bookplate designer.

The Irving S. Gilmore Music Library at Yale is delighted to announce that it is one of the recipients of a grant from the Grammy Museum.

Generously funded by The Recording Academy, the Grant Program provides funding annually to organizations and individuals to support efforts that advance the archiving and preservation of the recorded sound heritage of the Americas for future generations, in addition to research projects related to the impact of music on the human condition.

Collections in Conversation: Photobooks at the Arts & Beinecke Libraries

Photographs have had a home in the book format since the earliest days of photography. However, the interest in and study of the ‘photobook’ as a form is a more recent phenomenon. The definition of a photobook is still fluid in critical discussions, and perhaps it is this lack of rigid characteristics that makes the art form so interesting to collect and study.
