New BYU Library Exhibit Celebrates 'Expeditions of Discovery'

This summer, take a journey around the world and back in time with the Harold B. Lee Library's newest exhibition of artifacts from expeditions connected to BYU.

With contributions from the Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum, the Museum of Peoples and Cultures and the Museum of Paleontology, this exhibit features gems from these cultural institutions on campus. The contributions include: 

  • Allosaurus fossil jawbone and works by "Dinosaur Jim" Jensen, provided by the Musuem of Paleontology
  • Items from the university's first expedition in 1900, loaned by the Museum of Peoples and Cultures 
  • Insects from the Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum collection reflecting decades of fieldwork

Located on the main floor (level 3) of the Harold B. Lee Library, "Expeditions of Discovery" runs through September 30, 2014. Admission is free and the exhibition is open during all regular library hours. A large Ceratosaurus skull marks the entrance to the exhibition.
The story of the exhibit, "Expeditions of Discovery," starts with Karl G. Maeser, who asked that missionaries send the school interesting items found during their travels, and continues with educational trips of discovery by professors and students today.
