New Special Collections Website

Date Posted: October 23, 2012

The Connelly Library is pleased to announce a new Special Collections website, designed to showcase our unique collections to scholars around the world (www.lasalle.edu/library/speccoll). Here you will find detailed information and mission statements for each of the collections, including the Imaginative Representations of the Vietnam War collection — the largest of its kind in the world– and the Susan Dunleavy Collection of Biblical Literature — which features a wide array of rare illustrated bibles — among others. The website also features several digitized pieces of correspondence from American author, Owen Wister; these images are just the first examples of what will become, in the near future, an online digital library of the Wister family, the accomplished former residents of the Belfield estate,which sits on La Salle’s grounds. So please stay tuned and check back often, as the website will be updated frequently with new materials and information.
