Construction begins soon on a new gallery in Hodges Library that will feature interpretive exhibits of our special collections.
Special Collections acquires and preserves manuscripts, rare books, maps, photographs, and other unique research materials. Rotating displays of items from our unique collections are always on view in the Special Collections reading room, 121 Hodges Library. And we continue to expand the use of our special collections by creating digital collections and making them available online. But the new exhibit area in the heavily trafficked first-floor galleria of the Hodges Library will allow us to entice and inform many more students and passers-by.
Pictured here is an early concept drawing of the exhibit area. We can’t wait to see the new gallery!
