Northwest Christian University library director Steve Silver has begun a sabbatical that will extend over the summer. Silver is researching the history of NCU’s rare Bible collection. NCU’s founding president Eugene Sanderson went to England 100 years ago this summer to purchase Bibles, which became the foundation for the current collection. Silver hopes to recreate and document as much about that original trip as is possible, researching in NCU’s archives as well as the rare Bible collection itself. Later this summer he will visit England in the hopes of visiting some of the same bookshops and sellers Sanderson purchased from originally. Silver will be blogging his sabbatical project and experience at: www.silversabbatical.wordpress.com. He will return to his duties in the Kellenberger Library at NCU starting August 15.
