Last Wednesday afternoon, friends of the Non Solus Blog gathered to celebrate the opening of an exhibition in the Rare Book & Manuscript Library to promote the blog. The event was a great success and was attended by many people, including a group of African librarians who were visiting the Mortenson Center, several charter members of the University of Illinois Library Friends, and an original contributor to the Non Solus journal, retired University Archivist Maynard Britchford. All counted, more than 50 people attended and took part in hand-printing bookmarks, perusing copies of the original Non Solus journal, and viewing the items from the blog in the RBML display cases. Thanks to everyone who attended for making the event a success! For those of you unable to attend the opening, we hope you will be able to view the exhibition, open now through August 24th.
