Chambers Library is an Oklahoma State Textbook Committee review center located in District #5. All Oklahoma educators are welcome to visit the library and review the materials being considered for adoption. We now have a handy guide for navigating our curriculum collection.
The Early European Books resource is set to encompass all European printed material from the early modern period. The contents are drawn from major repositories including the Danish Royal Library, the National Central Library in Florence, the National Library of France, the National Library of the Netherlands, and the Wellcome Library in London. Over time, other significant national libraries will be adding their collections to Early European Books to enable researchers to conduct a seamless survey of the origins and development of Western culture. Early European Books also contains significant works by Aristotle, Copernicus, Descartes, Erasmus, Kepler, Luther and Spinoza, alongside ephemeral works such as pamphlets and almanacs.
Early European Books provides full-colour, high-resolution facsimile images scanned directly from the original printed sources. Each item captured in its entirety, complete with its binding, edges, endpapers, blank pages and any loose inserts, providing scholars with a wealth of information about the physical characteristics and provenance histories of the original artifacts. Detailed cataloguing includes standardization of variant author, city and printer names, thanks to a partnership with the CERL Thesaurus (www.cerl.org).
