- Libraries & Spaces
We are currently installing new doors in the stairwell in Lauinger Library. During this time, visitors will not be able to use landings that are under construction, either to enter that floor or pass through en route to another. We encourage visitors to use the elevators, although the stairwell may still be used to access floors that are not under construction. Landings under construction should only be used in the case of an emergency.

Gift of Elton F. MacDonald
This small portrait displays the combinations of visual theory and technique that combined to produce a high level of naturalist illusionism during the Renaissance in Italy. The infant Jesus is shown offering the emblematic lily to the young John the Baptist.
