25 Years of Sparking Discovery: Rauner Special Collections Library

April 15-18, 2024

We’re celebrating Rauner Special Collections Library’s 25th anniversary! Since opening its doors in the renovated Webster Hall in 1999, Rauner Library continues to make magic happen every day. Within its glorious spaces with lovely light and architectural features, many amazing moments and achievements have occurred. It’s a space where students and researchers have  delved into Rauner Library’s rare and unique materials to make new discoveries. With those amazing moments and new discoveries in mind, we invite you to join us in marking this 25th anniversary.

Kicking off on April 15, there will be a flurry of activity for you to join! 

Program highlights include an unmissable keynote speech by Gina Barreca ‘79, and sessions devoted to student achievements - particularly from the Historical Accountability Student Research Program - and panel discussions that highlight fantastic research and teaching and their outcomes. Check our events listings to learn more about drop-in activities hosted by Book Arts Workshop, the Conservation Lab, Jones Media Center, and Digital by Dartmouth Libraries. You can also join special tours of Rauner Library’s collections. While there, why not type up a note on the typewriter Mario Puzo used to write The Godfather? Now, that’s an offer you can’t… oh, you know!
