"Cool at Rauner": The Virtual Becomes Real

A colorful poster for "Cool at Rauner."On September 11, 2009, we posted our first entry on the "Cool at Rauner" blog. “A Beat Classic at 50” delved into the complicated printing history of the two "first" editions of William Burrough's Naked Lunch. Since then, we have posted 93 entries (this makes 94) highlighting new acquisitions, fresh discoveries and old favorites.

Usually, online exhibits follow physical exhibitions, but in this case we thought we would reverse the trend and create a physical exhibit based on some of our favorite blog entries. Visit Rauner Library's Class of 1965 Galleries to take a look. The exhibit will run from September 1 through October 31--we like to think it was "curated" by the Rauner blog.

And remember, you can see anything on this blog in the Rauner Library reading room, just come in and ask.
