With the new semester comes a new slate of special collections meet and greets! These pop-up exhibits bring rare materials out of the library and into Weiser Hall, where we'll be sharing selections from the Joseph A. Labadie Collection. Visitors making their way through Weiser's busy halls will have an opportunity to take a look at books, pamphlets, ephemera, and even LPs while chatting with staff to learn more about our collections.

Join us on Tuesday, January 15 for the next Special Collections After Hours event! This month, we're feeling the winter chill and offering up a frosty selection from our collections. Come see materials related to snow and winter, as well as some toasty recipes to take the edge off the Michigan chill.
This 1799 edition of The Images of Saints from the family of the Emperor Maximilian I (1459-1519) contains for the very first time an almost complete series of the woodcuts that were originally commissioned by Maximilian I to illustrate the legends, history and genealogy of earlier saints claimed to be connected to the House of Habsburg.
