“furnished lodgings close to a library” [3STU]
When you have a world-class collection, it makes sense for a world-class institution to house it. And not just any such institution (as there are many), but one that can meet the needs of the depositor.
In this case, we're talking about the BSI Archives and the Lilly Library—two venerable institutions.
From November 8-10, 2019, the BSI is hosting at conference at the University of Indiana, where the Lilly Library resides. Titled "Building an Archive: A Celebration of the Arrival of the BSI Archive at the Lilly Library," it will feature scholars, collectors, and enthusiasts alike and will encompass two and a half days dedicated to the collection.
The centerpiece of the event will be a special exhibition, "The History of the BSI Through 221 Objects," at the Lilly Library. How did the curators and trustees choose these items? What are they? and what will happen during the symposium?
Guest Glen Miranker, BSI ("The Origin of Tree Worship") and Ross Davies, BSI ("The Temple") join us to give us a behind-the-scenes peek at this exciting event. Be sure to register today!
