Exhibits Guidelines

Exhibits Guidelines
 
 
Exhibits are a valuable part of the University Library' public services outreach and user education program. Exhibits inform, educate, and promote the Library' information resources and services, and, at times, entertain. Exhibits provide an excellent opportunity for the Library to engage in collaborative projects, especially with faculty members and others in the university community.
 
 
 
 
The Library hosts a variety of exhibits including, for example, displays of new editions of books, selected examples from the collections, and traveling exhibits of artifacts, documents, and books. Individual units use a variety of exhibit “equipment” ranging from bulletin boards to glazed, lighted cabinets, both free standing and built-in.
 
 
 
 
 
This policy defines the philosophy and goals for exhibits and public art displays throughout the Library, identifies responsibility for these programs, and defines acceptance guidelines and general policies. Smaller exhibits which are regarded by Library staff as "displays" are covered by this policy with the exception of extent of publicity. Library staff involved in organizing, curating, and/or mounting exhibits or displays are deemed to be acting within the course of official duties and under the authority of the 6 Oct University Library.
