SMU Libraries treasures book

To commemorate the Year of the Library in 2013, SMU has published The SMU Libraries at 100: Celebrating 100 Treasures. The beautifully produced collector's volume highlights a selection of the most notable rare books, documents, correspondence and memorabilia contained in the collections of the University's libraries. Items range from the papyrus fragment of St. Paul's Letter to the Romans and an original copy of Darwin's On the Origin of Species to corporate archives and the artworks of some of Texas' finest painters. Entries feature richly detailed color photography and a brief description of each item's significance and history. The book, which sells for $20, may be purchased online at, as well as the SMU Bookstore, 3060 Mockingbird Lane in Dallas, 214-768-2435.
