The American University of Beirut just joined us as a partner in the Arabic Collections Online project. AUB will contribute upwards of 7,000 Arabic-language texts to the project, which will raise the number of texts we will offer online significantly. We welcome their partnership and look forward to receiving their books.
Items from the Judson Memorial Church Archive – over 10,000 images – are now live and available to the public. This collection from Fales Library spans nearly two centuries (1839-2001). During that time, Judson Memorial Church was a center of worship and of social activism such as civil rights, anti-war, reproductive rights, and the women’s movement. In addition, it became a center for avant-garde art ranging from its role in the artistic revolt against Abstract Expressionism, to postmodern dance at the Judson Dance Theater, to the Judson Poets Theater.
