"Yale’s libraries not only preserve knowledge, Gibbons said, but also play an active role as a partner to Yale in research and academic excellence through teaching and working with students and faculty. In the 2011–’12 academic year, the library provided 1,337 instruction sessions to more than 5,000 total students, compared with 746 sessions the year before, and established initiatives like the Traveling Scriptorium and Teaching Collection — two portable teaching tools for classes learning about the history of books and bookbinding."

"With Gibbons at the helm, library makes strides", Yale Daily News (AKA: teaching-is-equally-as-important-as-collections). Also, I want my own Traveling Scriptorium.
