What’s New? Recent Additions to Special Collections

This is a past event

Delve into the worlds of literature, history, art, African American history and Delaware history in What’s New? Recent Additions to Special Collections. The exhibition features an array of books and manuscripts that speak to the strengths of the University’s Special Collections.


The rare and unique materials on view, spanning from the 15th century to the present, represent a portion of what has been added to our collection since 2016. Visitors will find an early edition of Frederick Douglass’ autobiography, diaries of Delawareans who served in the Civil War, a Bible printed in the 15th century, and much more.


The exhibition is on view September 6 - December 9 in the Special Collections Gallery in Morris Library. The Special Collections Gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.


Admission is free. Please observe the University’s current COVID-19 health and safety protocols when visiting.
