"Writers ought not to look with awe upon libraries, as if libraries were Greek temples or holy shrines.  Libraries must always be lumberyards to us, houses of building supplies.  We go there for the facts, dates, documentation that are the cinderblocks and cellar beams of our work."

Created by Prof. Stephen Dow Beckham

Department of History



"Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill.  They are the engines of change, windows of the world, 'lighthouses' (as the poet said) 'erected in the sea of time.' "

                                                                                                              Barbara Tuchman
