The University Libraries has a selection of withdrawn books for use in this project. These books may be selected upon request from the Circulation Desk during regular library hours.

Materials pertaining to altered books are on reserve under the title “Altered Book Exhibition” at the Circulation Desk. These resources are available for 24-hour check-out to registered patrons.

Books may come from any source. All work must be original and executed within the last 3 years. The University Libraries reserve the right to refuse work difficult to exhibit due to excessive size, weight, or difficulty in presentation. If in doubt, please contact Sarah A. Hanson or Patti Roberts-Pizzuto (contact information below) prior to submission.
