Curators Randall Jarrell, Wendy Lees McMullen, Ken Lyons, Beth Remak-Honnef, and Irene Reti assembled books and materials highlighting the library's extensive holdings in Islamic architecture, music, decorative arts, book arts, calligraphy, textiles, and science.

The exhibit was enhanced by an array of textiles, jewelry, and weavings from Central Asia.
