Codices, Facsimiles, and Manuscripts in the Alkek Collections

AUGUST 22 - SEPTEMBER 30  1st Floor Exhibit Cases

While books aren't the only things you find in libraries today, they still define us. Much goes into the production of a book, from the author's hand written, drawn, or typed manuscript to the printed book itself. Come see examples of codices, manuscripts and facsimiles of earliest to more contemporary books in the Alkek Library collections.
