Houghton Lobby rendering

What would you like to see on display in Houghton Library's lobby?

When Houghton reopensĀ in Fall 2020, researchers, students, and visitors will be welcomed with a rotating, dynamic display of collection items carefully selected and interpreted to provoke thought, inspire creativity, and foster on-going and deepening relationships with the library. You are invited to nominate items for display in the lobby and share their significance to your research, work, and life.


We seek nominations for books, works on paper, and objects which are impactful, relevant and inclusive to create lobby displays that distill and convey the collections, services and programs offered by Houghton, evoke powerful responses and represent the broadest spectrum of human experience.


To make a nomination, please fill out our online form or send us an email.
