Library Collections Showcase Exhibits: Welcome!

Our collections are a fabulous gold mine for research, study, and teaching. We host exhibits to showcase a particular collection, to help inspire your research. This guide began in Spring 2018.

  1. The first exhibit featured here showcased the Window of Shanghai program and ran from January through April 2018.
  2. The second exhibit celebrated the 231st anniversary of the U.S. Constitution. The month-long September 2018 exhibit showcased primary research materials from our Superintendent of Documents collections of U.S. Government publications. September 17 marked the celebration of the 231st anniversary of the Constitution's signing with cake and learning activities.
