Framed Images in Shadek-Fackenthal Library

Beginning last spring, the following groups of framed historical and rare book images were installed in the library:

Periodicals Reading Room

Four framed shadow boxes featuring publications and artifacts documenting the history of Fackenthal Library from 1938 to 1983. Project funded by the Friends of the Library.

Mezzanine Level

Seventeen framed reproductions of rare books housed in the Archives & Special Collections. The images are part of a multi-phase “Footpaths to History” project funded by a grant from the Von Hess Foundation and designed by alum Jay Davidson Susanin ’87.

1st Floor Lobby

One oversized framed image containing reproductions of the contents of two library time capsules - one from 1897, and the other from 1937. Also part of the "Footpaths to History" project.
