All you need to know about library displays and exhibits in Meriam Library.

Library Exhibits Policy

In furthering its educational mission, the Meriam Library maintains a program of exhibits and displays. The content and workmanship of exhibits should be of good quality, in keeping with the Meriam Library's educational and cultural mission. Meriam Library supports all campus and community groups’ right to express their opinions, and aims to create a safe place for appropriate display of controversial topics. However, displays in Meriam Library are prepared by and reflect the opinions, interests, and efforts of individual University persons or organizations or members of the wider community. No official University or Meriam Library endorsement is expressed or implied. Please note that questions and/or concerns will be directed to the campus or community organization.

Meriam Library has priority in reserving the cases for displaying information about its collections.  When reservations are open, you can check the Promotions Display Calendar to see available dates and available cases. 

Partnerships for Meriam Library displays are subject to interest and availability.
