Alumni and Faculty Authors and Books

When on campus, alums are encouraged to visit the E. H. Little Library. Included in the many resources are several thousand volumes by and about Davidson alumni and faculty. The Archives and Special Collections is a great tool for 
researching primary sources, including archival materials, manuscripts, rare books and music. The Smith Rare Book Room is part of this collection and contains artifacts from Davidson's history including the table on which Davidson's charter was signed. 

New books by alumni are also published in the “Union: Bookshelf” column in the Davidson Journal. To add yourself to the shelf both in the journal and in the Davidsoniana Room, please send a signed copy of your book to Davidson Journal, Box 7171, Davidson College, Davidson, N.C. 28035.

Online Book Club

Alumni, families, friends, faculty, staff and students are invited to join Davidson's online book club, powered by PBC Guru. Participation is free. The club reads approximately four books a year, some authored by alums and faculty, through an assortment of genres.
