In the early 20th century, Penn State began to establish its reputation as a center for rare book collecting and preservation. The Pattee Library, named after the university's first president, became home to a growing collection of rare and valuable books, including first editions, manuscripts, and incunabula.

The Post-World War II Era: Innovation and Expansion

The post-World War II period marked a time of significant growth and innovation for Penn State's involvement in the history of the book. The university became a leader in the field of digital humanities, embracing new technologies to enhance the study and dissemination of knowledge.

In 1956, Penn State established the Center for the Book, one of the first university-based centers dedicated to the study of the book and its history. The center has played a pivotal role in fostering interdisciplinary research, supporting conferences and exhibitions, and promoting the preservation of book culture.

The Modern Era: Collaboration and Global Reach

In recent years, Penn State has continued to build upon its legacy in the history of the book through collaboration and global outreach. The university has partnered with libraries, museums, and other institutions around the world to digitize rare and unique materials.

Additionally, Penn State has established exchange programs with universities in Europe and Asia, facilitating the sharing of knowledge and perspectives on the history of the book across cultures.
