It's a good day for scholars.
The Bancroft Library, which shut its doors months ago as part of a seismic retrofit project, reopens today. For the next three years, the Bancroft will be off campus at 2121 Allston Way in Berkeley. Most, but not all of the collections, will be available.
The move was a carefully choreographed event. You can see pictures here of boxed books, crated sculptures, and rolled up mats.
The picture is a sculpture of good ole Hubert How Bancroft himself being moved to the new site.
