Alexandria Campus Library is pleased to feature books from our collection dealing with the 1990s Balkan conflict. This display occurs in conjunction with the Epilogue exhibit currently showing in the Tyler Gallery:

How do you learn about history? Books, lectures, documentaries? How about art. The current sculpture/ installation in the Tyler Gallery (Tyler Building Room 270) deals with loss -- the loss of war and the loss of environmental depredation. Inspired by the Epilogue installation, the library features books on the history of the Balkans and the Balkan wars of the 1990s. Visit the Gallery. Visit the Library. Read. Experience. Learn.
