Books @ Iowa

For thirty years, the UI Libraries published a newsletter called Books at Iowa that was intended to provide "a lasting source of information on the University of Iowa Libraries' key collecting areas." In some ways, Anchora is an attempt to do something similar, and so it seems fitting to update the name for our digital era.
