After driving about 90 miles north out of Dallas on I-35, we’ll cross the Red River into my home state of Oklahoma. I am certain that my Russian immigrant great-grandfather (who owned a drygoods store in the small town of Lehigh in the early twentieth century) could never have imagined that his great-granddaughter would someday be exploring centuries-old books in what was known until 1907 as „Indian Territory.” He certainly couldn’t have imagined that I would be able to do so while sitting at my desk in my Massachusetts home. working map

There aren’t many medieval or Renaissance manuscripts in public collections in Oklahoma, but there are enough to warrant a visit. We’ll start at the University of Oklahoma in Norman, where we will find one of the strongest History of Science collections in the country. According to the library’s website…

Właśnie trafiłem na bardzo ciekawy wpis, który poczyniła Sarah Werner z Folger Shakespeare Library na blogu tejże biblioteki The Collation.

Sarah Werner opowiada historię pewnego twitta. I jest to szalenie interesująca historia, która każe się zastanowić po raz kolejny nad różnymi zagadnieniami, od pozwolenia w bibliotekach na robienie zdjęć obiektom zabytkowym (na własny uzytek, oczywiście), rozpowszechnianie ich za pomocą mediów społecznościowych, przez najzwyczajniejszą w świecie chęć dzielenia się tym, czym się zajmujemy, co może przynieść (i zazwyczaj przynosi) niespodziewane i pozytywne efekty.

Miłej lektury! I zachęcam też do odwiedzania osobistego bloga autorki: Wynken de Worde.
