New Directions: Building Baker Library's Collections

March 30–August 3, 2007
Historical Collections, Baker Library-Harvard Business School

The foundation for contemporary research in history lies in the original materials that are available for study. It is the surviving documents—the letters, memos, reports, books, and images—that allow a story to be told. When pieced together, these individual documents act as evidence to describe and interpret history as well as to challenge commonly held assumptions.

In the current exhibit, "New Directions: Building Baker Library's Collections," a selection of materials reflecting current collecting themes is featured. Collecting directions are closely tied to trends in contemporary scholarship and include contemporary leaders, global markets, invention and innovation, intellectual capital, and visual evidence. Baker Library develops resources to better understand the important theories, organizations, movements, and individuals that have shaped the business world today.
