The Olive Tree
The hallmark of the Fogler Library Friends, an ancient engraving of an olive tree, was adopted from the title page of La Cosmographie Universelle by André Thevet. The two volume encyclopedia, which was published in Paris in 1575, is shelved in the Library's Special Collections Department. One of the longest living trees, the olive tree parallels the development of civilizations.

The Olive Tree is also the name of the Friends' newsletter. The newsletter, which is published twice a year, keeps members up to date on Library projects, technological innovations, and Friends' activities. A print version of the newsletter is mailed to all Friends members. Issues are also available on the Digital Commons.

Can't come to our web site as often as you'd like? We'll be happy to send the newsletter to you. Just fill in our membership information form. Be sure to provide us with your email address. If you would like more information about the Friends on the web and other electronic services, you can email Brad Beauregard, Public Relations Manager at
