    Featured Exhibit: Centuries of "The Good Fight": Women Authors in the Rare Books Collection

    This exhibit showcases notable examples of works by women authors from the University of Arkansas Libraries' rare books collections. As the work of Special Collections moves forward, adding resources that reflect the diversity of our campus and the research needs met by the unique and rare materials we make available,  we can examine how the collection has developed over the University's 150 years and how it continues to evolve.
