Sesquicentennial Series: A Place of Observation
Since the 1905 purchase of a $1,000 telescope UK has hosted three observatories, culminating in today's $250,000 MacAdam Student Observatory.
In celebration of the University of Kentucky's upcoming sesquicentennial in 2015, the 60th of 150 weekly installments explores the evolution of UK's Summer School programming.
There are all sorts of rare materials in UK Libraries, including a huge collection of books and posters from the former Soviet Union. With the 2012-2013 academic school year's A&S Passport to the World initiative focusing on Russia and its neighbors, the collection will get some extra exposure.
