Harold B. Lee Library

House of Learning Lecture Series

The House of Learning Lecture series’ title is taken from the 88th Section of the Doctrine and Covenants, verse 119, where the Lord instructs the Saints to prepare every needful thing, even a house of learning. Because it is the campus repository for the literature of all academic disciplines and scholarship, the Library is well positioned to be considered BYU’s House of Learning. The Harold B Lee Library takes seriously its campus role as the intellectual heart of inquiry and knowledge, and is honored to provide the House of Learning Lectures series.
