The Model Research Collection is installed on the Courtyard Level of the Bass Library.
From the story:
"[Professor Laura] Wexler reminded those gathered that nobody really works alone while in a Yale library. 'If you think you are in the library alone, you are deeply mistaken,' she said. 'We are not alone in discovering what access there is in the library system; what portals exist; what places to go and things to see.'"
Renovated Bass Library is a 'gateway' to research and learning by Mike Cummings | October 4, 2019
The Model Research Collection is a manifestation of a person’s or group’s process of investigation of a particular topic expressed physically through a collection of library resources. The selection of materials models the breadth and depth of what is available in the Yale University Library. The Model Research Collection curator selects relevant library resources from across the YUL system and in a variety of formats. Books from the circulating collections stand on the shelves, while electronic resources and non-circulating materials are represented through reproductions and on interactive screens. Each title contributes to an overall picture of how the resources of the Yale University Library system support innovative research in all disciplines.
Each year's collection has a different curator. The inaugural curator for the 2019-2020 academic year is Laura Wexler, Professor of American Studies and Professor of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.
