Welcome Letter

Dear Friends:

Brian E. C. Schottlaender

Welcome to our first issue of Domain in the new year - 2013.

Several of us just recently returned from a very stimulating and informative trip to the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library, a UCLA library specializing in 17th - and 18th - century studies. Those of you who joined us, I hope you will enjoy the article and photos from our visit. Those of you who didn’t, you will see that you missed a fabulous library with spectacular collections, as well as a most interesting exhibition on coffee and coffeehouse culture in early modern England.

I also want to call your attention to a small but compelling exhibition, “Alternative Accounts: Plains Ledger Art from the Nineteenth Century to Now,” currently at the San Diego Museum of Art. The exhibition includes four original Plains Indian ledger art books from our Mandeville Special Collections Library. The exhibition was curated by a group of UC San Diego students, including Joseph Herring, a recent graduate of UC San Diego and an employee at Geisel Library. The exhibition includes both 19th century ledgers and contemporary ledger art, donated to the Library by Ethnic Studies Professor Ross Frank. The exhibition was conceived by Professor Frank—who has been working for many years to preserve these amazing works of art—and Visual Arts Professor Terry Sowell. You can read more about the exhibition and the Plains Indian ledger books in this issue of Domain.

I hope you enjoy this issue of Domain.

I do hope you enjoy reading this latest issue of our newsletter!

Sincerely,

Brian E. C. Schottlaender

The Audrey Geisel University Librarian
