Alfred Deakin Prime Ministerial Library

exhibition title

New Horizons: journeys in the Special Collection is the latest exhibition from Deakin University Library and the first to showcase items exclusively from the Library's own Special Collections.
Journey around the world without leaving Geelong! This exhibition captures the view of the world first seen through the eyes of explorers and reveals the maps and documentation of what they found - all of which helped establish the tourism of today.
Ranging from early scientific voyages to nineteenth century exploration and the rise of popular tourism, this exhibition puts on display a selection of rare and wonderful books from the Library's Special Collection.

Open now until 24 January 2013.
