Nine inscriptions decorate the University Library in Kingston. They were carved by John Benson from 1992-1995 as part of a program to provide art for public facilities.

These pages are an adaptation of A Guide to the Nine Pieces (1997) by Associate Professor Emeritus Kenneth T. Morse of the Library. The Guide was based on a manuscript by John Benson and published sources.
