Bookplates collection is now digitized from the Archives

Wilkes University Archives is excited to announce that thanks to Ayden Clisham, a Junior Digital Design and Media Art major, the Bookplates series from the Gilbert Stuart McClintock collection is now digitized and processed. The Bookplates series contains 127 bookplates from a variety of academic libraries and clubs, historical societies, and wealthy individuals who commissioned artists to create bookplates for them from the mid 18th century to early twentieth century.
The finding aid with digitized collection can be found here:
The blog post, co-written by Ayden and Jessica Van Orden, an alumna of the English Literature department and graduate student of the Maslow Creative Writing Graduate program, highlights the specific bookplates belonging to collectors from the Wyoming Valley. Feel free to check it out:
