Charles A. Owen, Jr. Medieval Studies Library

In 1989, the Medieval Studies Library was dedicated in honor of the Medieval Studies Program’s co-founder Charles A. Owen, Jr. At its dedication, the library collection contained approximately 400 volumes from a variety of disciplines relevant to medieval studies. Thanks to the generous contributions of various donors, the collection has continued to grow over the years. The collection now includes over 3,000 titles, including monographs, editions, journals, digital resources, alumni dissertations, and documents from former and current faculty members.

Included in this collection is an edition of The Works of Geoffrey Chaucer published by John Urry in 1721, which was donated to C. David Benson and the Medieval Studies Program by Vincent DiMarco. In August 2011, a display case was installed in the Medieval Studies Library to house this volume.
