Digital Scholarship Showcase - Penny Library

Library: This showcase will feature the Penny Library, a free to use multimedia project that offers educational resources on the Age of Enlightenment


Back in the 17th and 18th centuries, the gentry of England gathered in coffee houses to discuss a wide array of issues. These places were known as Penny Universities because, for the price of a penny, one could purchase a cup of coffee and enjoy an intellectual conversation! Penny University Library is a free to use multimedia project that offers a digitized collection of authors, publications, and maps from the Age of Enlightenment. This tool is great for public education, classrooms, and scholarly use for understanding key details about the intellectual conversations of the past.

Free and open to the public. All are welcome. Participates will have time at the end of the presentation to ask questions and share thoughts and suggestions.
