18th Century Reading Room Closing

Effective August 16, 2008, the Eighteenth-Century Reading Room will be closed to the public and the collection will be returned to its owner, Charles Tanenbaum, shortly thereafter. The Eighteenth-Century Reading Room blog ( will remain accessible but there are no plans to update it at this time. Information about the Speaker Series will be posted shortly.

We apologize for the serious inconvenience this event will cause to those of you who have come to depend upon these resources.

Although certainly not a replacement for this collection, Graduate Center students and faculty are encouraged to use the database, Eighteenth Century Collections Online (ECCO) which contains over 150,000 books printed in the 18th century.
