About the RBS Lecture Program

Rare Book School sponsors a number of free, open-to-the-public evening lectures each year at the University of Virginia on a wide variety of bibliographical topics; please browse our list of past lectures for a sampling. RBS Lectures are usually held each Monday that RBS is in session, at 6 pm (unless otherwise noted), usually in one of two venues: the Dome Room of the Rotunda or 201 Clemons Library (no. 34 and no. 11, respectively, on the map of the historic UVa Central Grounds).
