"Locked away in a vault in the Special Collections department are books that will not see the light of day. Literally, that is.Lying in a vault at a constant temperature of 18 degrees Celsius, a humidity level of 55% and reduced oxygen levels to delay the spread of fire, they are waiting for curator Alisa van de Haar to pick them up and take them to a special room, where they will be subjected to the prying eyes of researchers."

In the Magazine on the UG website, a nice story was published about the treasures of our Special Collections department. With awesome pictures!
