A video of the dedication of the Joe and Rika Mansueto Library, held on October 11 at the Harper Memorial Library Commons, is now available on the UChicago News site and on YouTube.

The dedication ceremony featured a keynote address by Princeton professor Anthony Grafton, AB’71, AM’72, PhD’75, and the world premiere of “double helix,” a new piece by Augusta Read Thomas, the University Professor of Composition.  Remarks by University of Chicago president Robert Zimmer, provost Thomas Rosenbaum, director and university librarian Judith Nadler, and Joe Mansueto, AB’78, MBA’80, chairman and chief executive officer of Morningstar, Inc., were also featured.

A special edition of Professor Grafton’s Codex in Crisis commemorating the dedication of the Joe and Rika Mansueto Library has been published by the Crumpled Press. A circulating copy has been added to the Library’s general collection, and a signed copy (#10 of 250) will soon be added at the Special Collections Research Center, where earlier editions are already available.
