Library exhibitions: beyond book covers with Lourdes Santamaría-Wheeler (cs013-101), from 60.00; Thursday, June 10, 3-Hour Seminar: 12pm PT, 1pm MT, 2pm CT, 3pm ET USA
Libraries and archives are increasingly establishing exhibition programs as a way to highlight collections and engage visitors, beyond the traditional book cover display. But what are the best ways to plan exhibitions? What should you consider before embarking on storytelling and interpretation? This seminar will focus on a programmatic approach to library exhibitions, including policies and procedures, capacity building, and best practices as they relate to conceptualization, research and object selection, interpretation and label writing, borrowing materials, and funding. Both physical and digital exhibits will be discussed.
