Library Scholars Series

The Library Scholars Series is intended to encourage intellectual inquiry and facilitate an exchange of ideas among the faculty and students of Wheaton College. The series promotes scholarly partnerships and community on the Wheaton College campus. Scholars are typically nominated from the Wheaton College faculty and invited by the Wheaton College Library to present on a recently published piece of scholarship during the academic year.
