There is also an excellent collection of manuscripts and books of  
Period at SMU's Bridwell Library (Theology). You might want to watch  
their website as well for exhibitions, too---in case your location is  
nearer SMU than UT Austin (warm fuzzies for my old Alma Mater!!).

You might want to see if you can get on their list..... They even  
send out snail mail postcards--- which I save in a ringbinder for  
reference because the photos of the art works to be shown are  
wonderful to go to and "steal" from....
