Tisch Library and Tufts Digital Collections and Archives (DCA) recently launched exhibits.tufts.edu, where you’ll find online exhibits highlighting some of the unique items that Tisch holds in its collections.

Our very first exhibit, “Gathered Leaves: Manuscript Fragments from Tisch Library Special Collections,” tells the story of Tufts grad Walter J. Welch Jr. (class of 1928) and the infamous biblioclast Otto Ege, and their importance to Special Collections at Tisch and to the study of manuscripts.

Visit the exhibit to read more about Welch & Ege, and to browse manuscript leaves held by Tisch dating back as far as the 13th century. Keep an eye on the Tisch site for announcements about new exhibits coming soon!
