Lehigh Library Ornithology Exhibit

The Special Collections department at Lehigh University's Linderman Library has mounted an exhibit titled "Home to Roost: Ornithological Collections at Lehigh University," the university newspaper reports. The centerpiece of the exhibit is Lehigh's copy of Audubon's Birds of America, which came to the institution through its founder, Asa Packer. Other works on display include the usual titles by Catesby, Wilson, and Gould.

The exhibit will run through 21 December.
