The Thomas Jefferson Collection at the Library of Congress

Please join the Gleeson Library on September 8 as it celebrates the reopening of the Donohue Rare Book Room following a fifteen-month renovation. The University will welcome Mark Dimunation, Chief of the Rare Book and Special Collections Division at the Library of Congress, who will give an illustrated talk on “Jefferson’s Enlightenment: Reconstructing the Thomas Jefferson Collection at the Library of Congress.” Mark Dimunation is responsible for the development and management of the largest collection of rare books in North America. At the Library of Congress he acquires materials, develops programs, and oversees the operations of the Division. Prior to arriving at the Library of Congress he was Curator of Rare Books and Associate Director for Collections in the Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections at Cornell University. He specializes in eighteenth and nineteenth-century English and American printing history and is featured often on National Public Radio.
