Exhibition “Tallinn University of Technology Library 100”

1 month ago

Exhibition “Tallinn University of Technology Library 100” in the library’s glass gallery until the end of the year.

The exhibition gives an overview of the library’s developments over time and important events, the people who have worked at the library and the buildings in which the library has been located over the years. On display are important publications and archive documents, interesting extracts from periodicals and numerous photographs.

The first record in the library’s accession book is dated 11 December 1919 for the book "Морские паровые машины : описательный курс паровых машин Морского Инженерного Училища Императора Николая I с приложением атласа чертежей". Вып.1-3. The book was published in St. Petersburg 1902–1904 and it was compiled by Voldemar Madisov, an Estonian professor and Doctor of Engineering born in Tallinn. With that record begins the history of our library.

The exhibition was compiled by Milvi Vahtra and Marita Paas, tel. 620 3551, and designed by Tiia Eikholm.
