River Campus Libraries

  • Letters and manuscripts by Frederick Douglass and other important abolitionists, including an early edition of Solomon Northrup's Twelve Years a Slave, were acquired. These items serve as an important addition to River Campus Libraries' already strong collection of African-American historical materials that will continue to support anti-slavery research and scholarly projects.
  • Close to 100 letters written by Susan B. Anthony were acquired. The letters, written from Anthony to her colleague and dear friend Rachel Foster Avery, add to a rich collection of rare and unique 19th century manuscripts, which now include a total
    of 300 letters by Anthony.
  • Stored space and disk capacity was increased for Libraries digitization projects.
