To The Archives!

On Monday evening my book history and publishing class took a trip to the University archives, located in the basement of Tower Building on campus.  This was actually my first ever visit to the archives, although I know other subjects make much better use of the facilities offered there.  I, for one, definitely wish I had visited sooner! The archives are open between 9-1 and 2-5 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays and while...
