All topics for Library exhibits are welcome. Preferable are those that either highlight the University Library’s rich and vast collections or that look beyond the walls of the Library and attempt to incorporate nationally or locally recognized themes and events, campus programs, or emerging research. All exhibit topics should be presented in a thoughtful and inclusive way. Questions?
