Who’s got the button?

Welcome to all new and returning students!

If you weren’t able to make it to Sunday’s Freshman Orientation tour of the Library, you missed a chance to pick up one of these cool buttons.Buttons

Each button features an image from a selection of books found in  our Special Collections.  Whether it’s a ceremonial Pueblo costume, an early woodcut print, a 1908 map of Providence, a Pompeiian mural, a Picasso painting, a 20th Century visual poem, an Art Deco textile design, 1920’s fashion pattern, Blake watercolor, Japanese print,  Medieval hat, or other curious images, we have one for you.


Each button comes with a card that gives the title and call number of the book in which the image is found.  So if you want to see more images like these, bring the card with you next time you come visit the Library, and we’ll pull the book for you to look at.  And whether you are a Freshman or not, if you don’t have one of these great fashion statements, come in and get one while they last.
