The Newman Exploration Center is a vibrant and dynamic space in the John M. Olin Library that showcases Washington University’s broad and varied international activities undertaken by our students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

Throughout the year the center hosts a variety of events designed to inspire further exploration, engagement, and participation in discovery through travel. The Newman Exploration Center also provides resources related to domestic and international study, research, travel, and cultures to help campus community members create their own physical and intellectual journeys.

The Blaeu Atlas on display in the Newman Exploration Center (Level A) is one of our permanent exhibitions. Washington University Libraries’ Blaeu Atlas was a gift of Eric P. Newman and contains the last two volumes (volumes 8-9) of the Dutch version of the Atlas.
