Heritage Resources is pleased to announce that the Fall 2018 edition of Heritage Highlights is now available! In this issue, we feature our “collections in action,” with information about our public programs, research opportunities, new acquisitions, and teaching & learning activities. We are particularly excited about a significant acquisition of materials related to Jewish and Holocaust Studies, as well as another important collecting initiative on the history of mountaineering, which forms the basis of our current exhibit, To the Mountaintop: A Social History of Mountaineering. Learn about these resources and other related activities in this issue!
