"These acquisitions become available resources for all those who pursue knowledge."

Behind these acquisitions is the work of librarians, curators, faculty, students, and friends of the libraries to support research and teaching in more than 30 academic programs at Emory University. This exhibit highlights the stories of and selections from a few recent acquisitions including:&amp;#160; correspondence and memorabilia of renowned American author Harper Lee; artists&amp;#8217; books focused on nature and the complex interactions between humans and the environment; and&amp;#160;<i>Le Antichit&amp;#225; Romane,</i>&amp;#160;a four-volume set of detailed etchings of Rome created by artist, architect, and printmaker Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1778).
