Library Collections Showcase Exhibits: Welcome!

Our collections are a fabulous goldmine for research, study, and teaching. We host exhibits to showcase a particular collection, to help inspire your research. This guide began in Spring 2018 -- the first exhibit featured here showcased the Window of Shanghai program and ran from January through April 2018.

Each page includes images of items shown in the exhibit, links to related library resources, and a PDF brochure accompanying each exhibit. To see more about each exhibit, simply click on the blue tabs.

September 2018 (entire month) marks our current exhibit in honor of Constitution Day, in the atrium inside the main entrance of William T. Young Library. September 17, 2018, Constitution Day proper, we hosted special events to celebrate the 231st anniversary of the Constitution's signing in 1787.
