A journey is not just movement through time and space. It is a process of creation and transformation.

In this exhibition, the Special Collections of The Ohio State University Libraries gathered objects that represent a wide range of journeys. Some objects record journeys to remote parts of the world or journeys to bring about political change. Other objects represent journeys to overcome adversity, journeys to find home, or creative and spiritual journeys. All the objects in this exhibition show how a journey molds an object or a person into something more.

This exhibition provides a glimpse into the thousands of unique and rare objects of the University Libraries. These collections have journeyed from near and far to their present home. They are now preserved and cared for so that they will be able continue their journeys in ways we can only imagine.
