Welcome to the 2011-2012 UNC-Chapel Hill school year and to the Sloane Art Library’s new blog.
The beginning of the school year is always an exciting time around here, so we thought it would be the ideal time to launch our blog. We’ll be using it to keep you posted about Library and Art Department events, to show you some of our hidden treasures, and to share the thoughts and experiences of our patrons.
Here are some things you can look forward to appearing here:
- A series of posts about artists’ books from our collection;
- Interviews with studio art MFA students about how they use the library;
- Posts about scholars and artists who will be visiting UNC as part of the Hanes Visiting Artist lecture series;
- Interviews with art historians about several of the stunning facsimiles of medieval manuscripts we have in the collection.
And that’s just what we have planned so far.
Whether you’re just discovering the Art Library or you already agree that there’s no place like Sloane, we hope you’ll find something here to enjoy.
