We invite all students, faculty, staff, alumni and our community members to connect with the University Library and discover our changing public programs, exhibits, and collections of books and other resources. In partnership with our Writer-in-Residence, Professor Adam Braver, you can look forward to an exciting variety of events featuring notable authors and illustrators. Displays of rare and unique materials (both on-site and virtual) can be annually enjoyed, as well – celebrating anniversaries of notable American fiction and non-fiction. Each year our University Archives will keep you connected to the institution through exhibits from its collections of historic documents, photographs, and videos.
