Effective August 16, 2008, the Eighteenth-Century Reading Room will be closed to the public and the collection will be returned to the owner shortly thereafter. The Eighteenth-Century Reading Room blog will remain accessible but will not be updated. More information on the Speaker Series will be posted shortly.
We apologize for the serious inconvenience this 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.

I’m so sorry to see no more updates, but am SOOO happy that the blog is staying! This is an invaluable resource for me – thank you for all of the hard work!!
