About the Campaign

Special Collections & Archives in Kent Library teaches using rare books and manuscripts in the Rare Book Room collection. Due to age and condition, many of the rare books and manuscripts are fragile. To safely display and teach with these materials, professional standards require the use of a book mount or book pillow, of which we currently only have two. Six additional book mounts are requested to allow teaching a full class while preserving and protecting these invaluable, rare books and manuscripts during hands-on classes.
