New Display Cases

October 13, 2015

Thanks to a generous donation from Robert Emery (class of ’80), the Jacob Burns Law Library has installed two new display cases that will be used to showcase its amazing collection of rare and historic materials.  One case has been placed in the Rare Book Reading Room, while the other has been installed near the library entrance next to the Circulation Desk.  The latter, constructed in Germany by a leading maker of display cases for libraries and museums, is particularly impressive.  The first display placed in the larger case is a collection of memorabilia celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Law School.  The case in the Rare Book Reading Room is being used to display a unique collection of materials from the Praslin murder-suicide case that shocked France in 1847.
