University Library Exhibitions Committee

Charge

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.

Call for Exhibits

Have a great idea for a Library exhibit? Now’s the time to showcase it!

 The Library Exhibits Committee is seeking exhibits for the Main North-South Corridor  and Marshall Gallery. To submit an exhibit request form (and for more information on the exhibit spaces and available supplies), visit  http://www.library.illinois.edu/committee/exhibit/charge.html.

 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? Contact the Library Exhibits Committee at  excom@library.illinois.edu.


Funding for Exhibitions

Funding in support of library exhibits is available through the Dr. C. Barber Mueller Display Case Fund. Color and large-scale printing, display equipment, and exhibition supplies may be purchased by the Exhibitions Committee on behalf of exhibit curators. To find out more about funding for exhibitions, or to inquire about a reimbursement, please contact the Exhibitions Committee .
