    An exhibition in the Chang Octagon of the Rare Book & Manuscript

    March 29, 2013, showcases books and ephemera in Arabic, Armenian,
    Avestan, Persian, Sanskrit, Sumerian, and Turkish, while exploring the
    interdependence between the development of library resources and the

    Studies programs. Its historical context is the 150th anniversary of
    the birth of Richard Gottheil (1862-1936) and A. V. Williams Jackson

    programs in Near Eastern Studies:
