The included Website is a rather UNLish style of obtuse so I hope you can sort it out. The fund raiser seems like a good one. I wish the City Library would do the same – Keith
Students researched and wrote the historical and material descriptions for books that will be up for adoption. The assignment also introduced students to works that will support their own scholarship.
Instructions for the honorary adoption process can be found at http://www.unl.edu/medren/love-books. Items listed for adoption range from $25 to $1,000 and include manuscripts and books created in the 15th to mid-19th century by Jonathan Swift, King James VI and I of England, Ovid, Dante Alighieri, Sir Walter Raleigh and more. Donations will be acknowledged with a certificate in the name of the adopter or any honoree.
Andrea Nichols, a graduate student working on her doctorate in early modern English history, said she was impressed by the hundreds of medieval and Renaissance materials housed in Archives and Special Collections.
“There is a good foundation here for learning about the condition and composition of the items I examined in my dissertation, enabling me to be better prepared for more time-constrained trips to major archives in America and in England,” Nichols said. “There are even books here that have the reader marks I’m researching.”
The Medieval and Renaissance Studies Program is partnering with the Archives and Special Collections, University Libraries and the University of Nebraska Foundation on the campaign.
