Galileo's World was an “exhibition without walls” comprised of 20 exhibits at 7 different locations on all 3 OU campuses, designed to bring the diverse worlds of OU together to celebrate the University's 125th anniversary. Now that the anniversary year is over, the 350 original rare books on display at the different locations have returned home to our special collections.
