Gutenberg and Beyond

A significant facsimile edition of the 42-line Gutenberg Bible is on display throughout September in Resnick Library. Presented in its original size with illuminations reproduced in full color and gold, the Gutenberg Bible represents the success of moveable type created by Johan Gutenberg between the years 1450 and 1455.

While the Gutenberg Bible represents a key piece of western culture, the name now has given flight to an international undertaking to digitize out of print books. Access to Project Gutenberg is free, and the e-books can be downloaded to your PC or a hand-held device. The link to Project Gutenberg can be found on the Library’s Website under “Find Books” and under “Search E-Resources by Subject”, or Google “Project Gutenberg”.


Stop by the Resnick Library, view the display, search the web, and enjoy a cup of coffee at the Library Café. We hope to see you soon!
