Let Yucef Merhi, our digital curator, be your guide as we explore the digitization process behind bringing our most eye-popping rare volumes online. Walking us through The Wolfsonian's new online playground, the DigiBooks Library, Yucef will discuss the historical context contained in his beautifully illustrated selections—from Micky Wolfson's first official purchase (The Rime of the Ancient Mariner) to editions with stunning butterfly drawings—and explain how digital tools like DigiBooks engage countless new audiences with The Wolfsonian's many treasures.
