Welcome to the new home for news and updates from UMW’s Special Collections & University Archives department. Staff will use this blog to share announcements regarding new exhibits, digital collection updates, exciting additions to our collections, upcoming events, interesting information about our rare books and archives, and much more. New stories will be published on the Library’s website, and you can also subscribe using your preferred RSS feed reader. We hope to add an email subscription option soon, too. 

If you’ve been a longtime reader of our previous blog, Spinning Wheel, you’ll still be able to access previously published articles. However, with changes to UMW’s blog hosting system coming this summer, Spinning Wheel will be an archived website, and will no longer be a functioning database with a search feature. If you’re having trouble locating a specific article, or have any questions, please contact us at archives@umw.edu
