Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them at Becker Library

If you’re a Harry Potter fan, you’re probably aware that the Potterverse is about to expand with the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. This new film follows the adventures of Newt Scamander, the wizard who authored the textbook Harry and his fellow Hogwarts students used in their Care of Magical Creatures class. While we Muggles (or No-Majs, as we’re called in North America) are unlikely to encounter any hippogriffs, acromantulas, and grindylows in person, if you venture up to Becker’s Archives and Rare Books you can see them in some of our historical texts!

Contacting Ghosts

The end of fall is the season when the veil between our world and the spirit world is thinnest. That means Halloween is the best possible time to try to communicate with ghosts and spirits!

Banned Books Week: Thomas Browne

September 25 – October 1 is Banned Books week.

Introducing Aeon

We are very excited to announce that Archives and Rare Books has decided to implement Aeon, a library requesting software created for special collections.

A Touch of Medical Humor

This work is disrespectfully dedicated to those who feel that a knowledge of the Human Body, sufficient for the needs of the future Medical Practitioner, can be adequately obtained without post

A Spanish Edition of Dioscorides

If you were to look at where all of the pre-1800 books in our collections were published, you would notice that some cities show up over and over, such as Venice, Paris, Lyon, Basel, and Frankfurt.

National Poetry Month - Samuel Garth's The Dispensary

Garth’s work is a satirical take on the traditional epic poem, and is perhaps one of the better examples of the “medical poetry” genre. What better way to celebrate National Poetry Month than by taking a closer look at this work and its author?

Women in the Print Shop

Our rare book collections hold several editions of Ambroise Paré’s surgical works.  This is not unusual.  Paré (1510-1590) is one of the most famous early modern surgeons, and his writings were very popular during that time period.
