The current exhibition showcases some favorites from the Special Collections staff. Come see some wacky, unique and awe-inspiring art, books, prints and objects selected from the thousands of items in Special Collections that most people never see. Curated by Adam Wallace, Julie Moore and Gregory Megee, this exhibition will feature a rotating set of selections over the course of the academic year. Viewing hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Open to the public. Everyone is welcome.
The Sanford Aday Collection

Adam has chosen to highlight the Sanford Aday Collection.
Julie Moore is the Special Collections Catalog Librarian
The pieces Julie has chosen as her favorite items from the Special Collections Research Center collection for this exhibition are examples of miniature and small books. She has a personal passion for miniatures (yes, as in dollhouse miniatures, which she has enjoyed since childhood), and professionally, she enjoys working with miniature books.
Gregory Megee is the Special Collections & Archives Assistant.
A trained historian with a love of early modern European history, and a life-long bibliophile, some of the items closest to Gregory’s heart in the Special Collections Research Center are the rare books from the 15th and 16th centuries.
Gregory has chosen to highlight the classic 16th century work of anatomy De humani corporis fabrica (The Fabric of the Human Body) by Andreas Vesalius.
