Libraries are increasingly turning to exhibitions to engage their patrons. Exhibitions have the potential for offering unique and exciting opportunities for creating meaningful connections between libraries and select communities. In this session, panelists will discuss library exhibition outreach and engagement from various perspectives. Session highlights include discussions on faculty collaborations of promoting collections through exhibitions, building an exhibition program from the ground up, and strategies to enhance curriculum through diverse exhibits and embedding those exhibitions into the classroom. Collaborations and partnerships for exhibit-related programming will also be discussed. We hope attendees will learn from our experiences and insights in organizing library exhibitions and take away specific examples they can incorporate into their future exhibition programs.
