Teaching the History of Print

This guide covers resources in Special Collections related to the history of print in Europe, starting with the 1450s and continuing to the 20th century.

MU Special Collections

The majority of the items in Special Collections are suitably for courses covering the history of print. Listed below are finding aids and digital resources at the University of Missouri that seem especially relevant to either early printing, to technological developments in printing, or as ephemera, a subcategory of printing that may be of particular interest to a print history course. Other relevant materials in Special Collections may be found in MERLIN.
