New RBS Website

Welcome to the new Rare Book School website!

Twenty years after the very first RBS website, and nine years after the last large-scale redesign of the site in early 2006, we have made the leap to a WordPress platform, which will make the site much easier to update and to maintain. It also allows us to share many more photos, provides a more stable platform for video and audio files, and enables us to provide an online store for easy purchases of RBS publications and gifts.


The versions of the website from 1995 through 2014 will remain live as an archive, but please note that these will not be updated going forward.

We worked with Helium Studio from Richmond, VA on this redesign, and we are very grateful to them for their excellent work (and for their patience with us as we worked through the complex details of this transition).

Have a look around the site, and we’d very much appreciate your comments on the new site design. Please send any feedback to Jeremy Dibbell, the Director of Communications & Outreach.
