We have a large batch of Adopt a Book materials to feature this time! Thanks to the Friends of the Libraries, our generous donors, and conservator Jim Downey, the fragile, valuable and irreplaceable books in Special Collections can receive greatly-needed repairs and preservation treatment. This program provides the main source of funding for rare book preservation and repair at the University of Missouri Libraries. Since the collections are heavily used, this is a vital service for MU researchers and students.
The books featured below are just a few of the ones that have recently received conservation treatment through this program. Take a look, and consider sponsoring a rare book through the Adopt a Book program website.
