Brandeis University faculty, students and staff can now access the New York Times Digital Edition through our academic site license provided by the Brandeis Library.
The Brandeis University campus comprises roughly 100 individual buildings. Blueprints and architectural drawings of these buildings must be retained for as long as each building exists. A single building can have dozens or more associated drawings, as the drawings typically describe specific sections or systems within a building.
Attention all students! Are you artistic? Do you like books? Submit your art to “Inspired by the Book: A Library Art Competition” (part of the Bernstein Festival of the Creative Arts).
A little-known fact is that a great deal of work goes into maintaining the rich collection of books we have here in the Brandeis Library. Our Preservation Department repairs hundreds of books every year.
Bruce Davidson’s East 100th Street disappeared from the Brandeis Library in 1973. It would not return for several decades. Then one day in 2015, the book arrived back at the Library with a note from the former student who had held onto it for 42 years.
