Connecticut is hopping with Tour Day events this year! The Beinecke Library at Yale University is hosting a special tour on October 13th to provide a look, inside and out, of the iconic 1963 building designed by Gordon Bunshaft of SOM. The tour will be lead by library staff. Attendance is free and open to the public #exploremodern #docomomous #tourday #publicspaces #beinecke #beineckelibrary #yaleuniversity #gordonbunshaft #som #archilovers #modernism
A few more from yesterday’s Yale visit, featuring some fabulous 19th-century French textile designs, a Victorian children’s game based on the Battle of Trafalgar, some cabinet card viewing at @yalebritishart , and lunch with @instab_b_g and Official Judy Blume Curator Tim Young (who curates other collections too, but come on). Thanks to @miko_mcg for the pix! #yalebritishart #beinecke #rarebooks #bookstagram

Beinecke library at Yale is super cool. Always love a visit. And go to the galleries while you’re there! My old haunts.
You’ve got Yale ✉️
The closest I’ll get to the library in Beauty and the Beast, minus the whole captive against my will part. #beinecke #bookporn #phdlife #bookstagram

#Repost @beineckelibrary #AwesomeColleagues ・・・ Adrienne, Rebecca, and Angie of Access Services in Beinecke's 1960s Room...photo by @meredithmillerphoto ADRIENNE (standing by bookcase): "I've been back for 11 years since graduate school. In my former life at the Beinecke, I worked for 4-1/2 years in the Manuscript Unit. My graduate work was in decorative arts and design and material culture. I'm partial to anything Victorian or nineteenth century. Charles Dickens's chair hasn't come across my desk but it's fantastic that we own it! I also love H.D.'s desk. There's also a textile fragment or swatch from Morris & Co. that's a favorite of mine. And pencil drawings by Walter Crane for an interior design scheme at Vinland in Newport." REBECCA (seated): "These past 1.5 years that I’ve been working at the Beinecke Library in Access Services have been a dream. We are surrounded by and have the privilege to work with a wealth of historically significant materials every day, and interacting with patrons who are just as thrilled to handle the materials fosters a sense of excitement and community here." ANGIE (standing by column): "A lot of amazing materials have come across my desk, but I initially came across the coolest ones when I first arrived. When I started working here two weeks ago, I received an informal tour and was told that I was standing in front of a papyrus collection, some of which belonged to the ancient Egyptians. It was amazing to know that artifacts from centuries ago were only feet away from me. it was then that I began to comprehend the true magnitude and rich history of the artifacts that I would work with. The vastness of the collection. It includes anything from rare books, to sculptures; paintings, papyrus, ancient artifacts and everything in between. I feel as though I’m walking through a time portal. The fact that I have first hand access to items that have shaped the course of history is truly awe inspiring." #yale #librariesofinstagram #beinecke #librarystaff #1960s #librarylife #librarylove #newhaven #nhv

This is what I came for. After researching some of the most incredible libraries around the world, the Beinecke Library on the Yale campus landed on the top 10 list. It is one of the largest buildings in the world entirely dedicated to rare books and manuscripts. It is certainly nothing short of incredible. #yale #university #yalelibrary #beinecke #rarebooks #books #libraries #architecture #connecticut #ct #connecticut_igers #newengland #bucketlist #newenglandphotography #travel #travelgram #wanderlust #eastcoast #visitct #vacaction #explorect #wanderlust #coastal #college #summer18 #views #newhavenct #perspective

A visit to @yale today has revealed one of the most exciting architectural gems and libraries of rare books. The nerd in me is definitely excited. #beinecke #beineckelibrary #yale #library #ivyleague #rarebooks

Dans cette bibliothèque, plus d’un million de livres et des millions de manuscrits anciens, dont des papyrus. Des pièces rarissimes comme le premier exemplaire de la bible imprimée (la Bible Gutenberg), le stylo avec lequel A. Lincoln a signé la declaration d’indépendance, le premier dessin de Peter Pan par Walt Disney, etc... Cette bibliothèque se veut d’être accessible : les étudiants de Yale ont accès aux documents sur simple demande. N’importe lequel. Pareil pour le public. L’architecture géniale, pensée pour protéger les documents est l’œuvre de Gordon Bunshaft et date de... 1963. J’ai commis l’impardonnable erreur de ne pas prendre l’extérieur en photo. Trop dommage. Du marbre et du granit. Dingo. @beineckelibrary #library #yale #beinecke #architecture #architecturelovers
It’s not typical to find an archive of papers where one of your favorite writer’s thinking is so well documented—but that’s exactly what I found this past spring. One of the coolest things I’ve done this year has been diving into the original index cards on which Annie Dillard drafted “Pilgrim at Tinker Creek.” Archival work can be really gratifying and addictive! . Also, a shout-out to my fav notebook company, @decompositionbook. . . . #beineckelibrary #archives #pilgrimattinkercreek #virginia #gradschool #reading #writing #readingissexy #anniedillard #research #writersofinstagram #beinecke #decompositionbook
Feeling very fortunate to be surrounded by so many rare books and manuscripts!

I know it’s hard to read the printed side because the paper is thin and the manuscript note bleeds right through. But this is a form letter from J.P. Clough of Junction, Idaho, offering to exchange minerals for books and other minerals. And it seems to have worked out well for him. “I have made many agreeable acquaintances and correspondents, gained some knowledge, procured a nice cabinet and library, and, at the same time, I believe and trust the many hundreds who have exchanged with me have been benefitted, and, as a general thing, perfectly satisfied.” — Clough, J. P. Junction, Lemhi Co., Idaho. Friend, the following is a list of minerals offered in exchange for books and minerals ...

Our tables are set for tea! A very genteel behind the scenes of Beinecke’s Rare Book Cataloging Unit, where we’re cataloging tea sets today. This set comes from the David Alan Richards collection of Rudyard Kipling, and depicts “A gentleman in kharki” [sic], with lines from Kipling’s poem “The Absent-Minded Beggar.” Both the poem, which was set to music by Arthur Sullivan, and the tea set were created in 1899 as a fundraiser for soldiers fighting in the second Boer War. It was a resounding success, raising £250,000, and is considered to be the first charitable effort for a war. #teatime #rudyardkipling #theabsentmindedbeggar #agentlemaninkharki #richardcatonwoodville #gilbertandsullivan #arthursullivan #secondboerwar #fundraising #fundraisingideas #charitablefund #teaset #twolumpsplease #specialcollectionsindeed #specialcollections #beineckelibrary #brbl #beinecke #kipling #beineckebehindthescenes

We may be called the Rare Book Cataloging Unit, but we catalog much more than books. Check out some Kipling-decorated kitchenware that one of my co-workers began unboxing this afternoon for cataloging. #CatalogerLife #RudyardKipling #RichardsKiplingCollection #Beinecke #NotJustRareBooks

I finally get a chance to visit the Beinecke Library. It was being renovated the year I was here in 2015. It’s just breathtaking & humbling to see. The thought that the library holds a collection that spans hundreds of years of literature, history, is simply humbling. #beinecke #yale #libraries
The Works of Charles Dickens, part 9, March 1872, including the end (and title page) of Martin Chuzzlewit. I also took a picture of one of the inner wrappers, because I couldn’t resist ladies’ boudoir candles. #ADickensADay #DickensDay9 #CharlesDickens #MartinChuzzlewit #fascicles #beinecke #iglibraries #ig_libraries
