Annually, the Penn Libraries acquires thousands of new books, periodicals, and materials in various formats for use by students and researchers. Some of these items are purchased; others are acquired through donation. Among the most interesting, unique, and valuable materials are those acquired by Penn's Special Collections Libraries. This exhibition will showcase many of these recent acquisitions and honor our donors. Materials on display are drawn from the Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies, the Fisher Fine Arts Library, the Middle Eastern Collection, and the Rare Book & Manuscript Library.
