Belzberg Display Celebrates 500th Anniversary of Aldus Manutius

A new display at Belzberg Library celebrates the 500th anniversary of Venetian scholar, printer and publisher, Aldus Manutius with a range of material on Aldus and the history of the book.  This auspicious anniversary will also be marked by an SFU 50th Anniversary project to make Aldus’ rare books accessible to the public.  SFU Library and Publishing@SFU are creating an online resource, Aldus at 500, by digitizing a selection of the Aldines from the Wosk-McDonald collection of SFU Library.  A preview of this beautiful world-class collection is now available in the SFU Library Digital Collections, and the project will be officially launched on Thursday, August 13 at the PKP Scholarly Publishing Conference.
