Welcome Neyda Gilman!

Who joins the campus community as the librarian for the Decker School of Nursing (DSON) and the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (SOPPS).

Gilman comes to us from Colorado State University in Fort Collins, where she was the liaison librarian to the College of Agriculture Sciences, as well as to the departments of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and Microbiology, Immunology and Pathology.

Meet our new Cataloging Librarian, Rachel Turner!

“As the new Cataloging Librarian, I look forward to helping students and staff find the resources they need through the Library Catalog.

Picture1.Rachel TurnerI also have plans to help make the resources in Special Collections more easily available and to take part in other on-going projects, such as digitization, which will also improve user access to important Libraries’ resources.

My graduate work at The University of Texas at Austin focused on User Experience and metadata. While there I was the Cataloging and Metadata Graduate Research Assistant at the Perry-Castañeda Library.

In addition, I have an MA in East Asian Art from the Sotheby’s Institute of Art, London, where I focused on Korean ceramics.

In my free time I enjoy drawing, traveling with friends and family, and reading.”

Welcome Rachel!

Special Collections and CEMERS reveal newly-acquired 14th century Latin manuscript

Professor Kayla Whearty and her students examine new acquisition, Postilla litteralis super epistolam ad hebraeos.

Assistant Professor Bridget Whearty and her students examine new acquisition, Postilla litteralis super epistolam ad hebraeos.

“Literal Commentary on the Epistle to the Hebrews”
(Postilla litteralis super epistolam ad hebraeos)

~Nicholas of Lyra

This week’s celebration of alum Alex Huppé’s generosity in Bartle Library’s Huppé Reading Room offered the opportunity to view the 14th century manuscript recently acquired through his support. The acquisition came as a recommendation from our Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, Distinguished Professor and Director of CEMERS Marilynn Desmond.

14th-century manuscript of Nicholas of Lyraís Postilla litteraliAuthored by Nicholas of Lyra, one of the greatest biblical scholars of the Middle Ages, this particular work, the Commentary on the Epistle to the Hebrews, is part of his larger Commentary on the entire Bible. Here, Lyra addresses Paul’s Letter to the Hebrews in which Paul urges perseverance in the face of persecution, essentially encouraging people to keep the faith.

Visitors are welcome and invited to view the new addition by contacting Special Collections.
