Asemic Manuscript | Library Resources

Recommended Readings

As part of each exhibit, we will select books from the library collection that compliment the exhibit theme. These selected books highlight the research potential for each exhibit. The selection showcases the in-depth and interdisciplinary nature of research that is possible using George Mason University library resources.

With the exception of reference books and journals, books shelved on the gallery bookcase are available to check out. Bring the selected book(s) to the front desk in Fenwick Library and show you Mason ID card.
