Ex Libris: Medical Bookplate Digital Exhibit

Medical Bookplates from the Collection of Dr.Bert J. Davidson

Have you ever opened an old book to find a label pasted in the front with the slightly Harry Potter-esque “Ex Libris” written on it? Have you then wondered “what devilry is this be-written twixt yon pages?” Now  you can find out a little more about ex libris during the Harriet K. & Philip Pumerantz Library exhibit “Ex Libris: Medical Bookplates from the Collection of Dr. Bert Davidson”. 

For a limited time the library will be displaying a number of medically themed bookplates alongside an electronic exhibit on the library’s digitized collections page. Be sure to visit our digitized collections where you can study the bookplates more closely, check out old yearbooks, read about the history of WesternU in our newspaper clippings collection, or access old course catalogs.

Our other digitized collections can be access at: http://cdm15885.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/ or through the library website.

If you have any questions about the collection please contact the University Archives at 909-469-8489.
