The Margarett and Herman Brown Library is the most-visited building on campus, and we are honored to have several spaces in the building where visitors can view curated displays from our collections. On the main level visitors to the Learning Commons can always see a selections from the Max Lucado Papers. On the lower level visitors first encounter a large wall case anchoring the main stairwell. Currently we have an exhibit about ACU Athletics curated by students in a public history course. Next, inside the quiet study area on the first floor is a second large wall case featuring selections from the poetry of Walt McDonald. Finally, inside Special Collections we display the pulpit from the Ahorey Presbyterian Church used by Thomas Campbell during his ministry there (1799-1807), an original oil portrait of Alexander Campbell, the Waynai Bible along with our main exhibit, currently, ‘Thus Saith the Lord: Thomas Campbell’s Declaration and Address.’
Yet, we realize many people cannot visit our physical home to see these exhibits in person. For this reason we host these online versions of selected exhibits:
