Collection building is an important function of the library. In this case, the focused and persistent interest in Elizabeth Bishop has lead to an unparalleled collection. This development supports the work of students from Vassar and other colleges and universities; the research of literary scholars here and abroad; and a variety of programming, such as exhibitions, special conferences, and dramatic performances. Truly the collection has enriched our intellectual life on campus and around the world. The items shown in the current exhibition (mounted to honor the 25th anniversary of Bishop’s death) are drawn from the original acquisition and also from more recent additions. They provide a testament to the value of wise collection building, and also provide inspiration for further efforts in the future.
