Preserving the Word: World Religions in our Libraries

Department of Special Collections, 976 Memorial Library

Through May 25, 2018 

Librarians look at collections within a library as never final or complete; they consider resources from multiple libraries within an institution, within systems, and within consortia as ways to bring the library user thorough and extensive information on any given topic. This exhibit comprises items from many different libraries on campus. It is not reflective of the entire collection, and it is not reflective of all the religions of our users or visitors.

The co-curators of this exhibit — Thomas Durkin, Todd Michelson-Ambelang, and Lisa Wettleson — hope that the materials exhibited will help visitors understand the complexity and uniqueness of identity and religion in the world.

Open Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.–5 p.m.
