View a video preview of the exhibition The Mystique of the Archive, on display through January 4, 2009 at the Harry Ransom Center.

Drawing from the Ransom Center's modern literature collections—including Julian Barnes, Don DeLillo, and Anne Sexton—The Mystique of the Archive describes what constitutes an archive, documents the evolution of creative works, and maps an archive's journey from the writer's home to the scholar's desk.
