This year the Seeley G. Mudd Library celebrates Lawrence University’s 150th year with the Federal Library Depository Program! Our affiliation with FDLP is by far the longest among all universities and colleges in Wisconsin. Our collections of Congressional records and government documents include historical treasures unique among all FDLP libraries in the state.

We invite everyone in the Lawrence community to help us celebrate this milestone!

Tuesday, November 5 at 3 p.m. outside the Lincoln Reading Room on the first floor of the Mudd Library.

Festivities will include:

  • Presentation of an honorary plaque by Anthony Smith, Chief, Projects and Systems of the Government Publications Office in Washington, D.C.
  • Opening exhibit featuring beautiful highlights from the collection
  • Brief remarks on the significance and scholarly uses of the collections by Beth Harper (Regional Coordinator, FDLP), Arnold Shober (Professor of Government, Lawrence University), and Jill Thomas (Director of Technical Services, Mudd Library).

Cake and coffee will be served!
