Open Doors, the Milstein Center for Teaching and Learning’s inaugural exhibition, will be taken down on Saturday, March 14th.

The Pine Tree Scholars program introduces Barnard and Columbia students to the crafts associated with fine book production, such as typography, letterpress printing, bookbinding, and papermaking, as well as to the rare and art book trades. Most of these sessions include a hands-on component but no prior experience is necessary. All mandatory sessions will take place on Friday afternoons; two optional sessions take place other times.

Library Stack is a living collection of independent ebooks, audio files, videos and digital documents being published within the fields of contemporary art, design, media studies, cinema, architecture and philosophy.
