Oxford College Library Exhibits - Past and Present

Oxford College Library: The New Edition

The inaugural exhibit in the Fran Elizer Exhibit Gallery was a retrospective on the history of the library at Oxford College, which served as the original Emory campus from 1836 to 1919.  As the college celebrated the opening of the new Library and Academic Commons, it seemed fitting to look back on the history of the libraries on the Oxford campus.  The buildings have changed.  The collection has grown.  Yet, the best traits of the library have remained the same.  Dedicated librarians and staff ensure that information is readily available and easily found.  Alumni still remember with fondness their time at Oxford and give their support to the college, making it better for those who come after them.  The library continues to serve as a place for the Oxford community to gather, to learn, and to connect.
