The Dibner Library of the History of Science and Technology recently enriched its collection with an intriguing 16th century work in astronomy, Christop Clavius’s In sphaeram Ioannis de Sacro Bosco commentarius. Romae, 1570. Apud Victorium Helianum.

It is more than possible to repeat such experiences and this is one way to expand services in the Dibner Library. In addition to our resident scholars, visiting college and graduate classes, we are glad to have younger audiences to come and view rare books.
The Libraries recently launched a new donation program, Adopt-a-Book.
Donors can choose to make an unrestricted gift, and the Libraries will apply where it is needed the most. Acquisitions, conservation, digitization, exhibitions, and research initiatives all represent areas that could benefit from these donations.
There’s still time to see some wonderful images relating to the celebration of the 150th anniversary of Italy’s unification.
The items are displayed in an exhibition in the Dibner Library reading room, open 2-4 pm through this Friday. If you are in the washington D.C. area, be sure to stop by and take a look!
