This exhibit will showcase the library's resources on the culture of names and
naming around the world. It will encompass anthroponomy, onomastics, and genealogy to show the rich
of naming practices of different world cultures, which are represented in our university community. The idea is to foster cultural understanding and promote diversity on campus and the area.

This exhibit is being held in conjunction with a conference by the same name
organized by the Departments of Anthropology and Spanish, Italian and Portuguese.
The exhibit will include materials in the UIUC Library that touch upon the conference theme.
The Library Exhibitions Committee supports exhibits that highlight the University Library's rich and vast collections, and especially encourages exhibits that look beyond the walls of the Library and attempt to incorporate nationally or locally recognized themes and events, campus programs, or emerging research. The Committee maintains a wide variety of preservation-friendly supplies and offers modest funding assistance to exhibitors throughout the University Library system. The committee also manages exhibitions held in the designated Main Library display cases. At the start of each academic year, the committee solicits exhibitions for these display areas from the Library and campus community and maintains a schedule of these exhibitions, including the titles, dates of displays, and names of exhibitors, which are publicized through the Office of Library Advancement.
