Humanities: The Newberry Library Launches Their Own Online Magazine

The titles of the new publication is, The Newberry Magazine.

From an Introductory Blog Post by David Spadafora, President and Librarian, Newberry Library.

Highlighting our 125th anniversary, the following pages will bring you inside the Newberry and give you an intimate look at the past year, from preparations for two major exhibitions to the publishing of our new volume, The Newberry 125, Stories of Our Collection.

In the center, you will find our 2011-12 Annual Report, including financial statements, program summaries, and other important information about the past year. Highlights in this section include our “Conversations at the Newberry” series, the installation of compact shelving, and an update on our campaign.

We will produce The Newberry Magazine twice a year. The winter issue will include an annual report, and the summer edition will feature core Newberry initiatives as themes, such as our fellowship programs, collection projects, and our campaign. Every issue will inform you about upcoming programs and special events.
