As I cradle the book in my hands, flecks of its leathered paper-board cover release into the free air. Carried affectionately like dandelion wisps in the summer breeze, the flecks disperse from the margins of their centuries-old home and, fearing nothing, return to the very dust of matter from which they were born. I’m reminded in this seeing and feeling of my own mortality, my impermanent nature. I recognize myself in these flecks, not knowing how or why but that we are undeniably connected.

I’m so pleased to share the great news that Erin Thajudeen has joined the Humanities and Area Studies Resource Group as a curatorial assistant. She’ll be working with several of the curators to enhance accessibility to the materials in our areas. Erin will provide much-needed support to evaluate and process collections, and will help us offer valuable outreach services like open houses, instruction, and exhibits. You may also see Erin in the Special Collections reading room helping to staff the desk.
