Exhibitions are an important way to share special collections with larger audiences. Since materials do not typically circulate, many people will never see or know about the wonderful material in UC Libraries special collections. Exhibitions offer an opportunity to highlight imporant collections and celebrate milestones.
- Ambrose Bierce Letter Project
- Irish Literature Collection
- Edinburgh Urban Ghost Story
- John Shaw Billings and the Medical College of Ohio: Shaping Twentieth Century Medicine (April 10 - July 1, 2014), on display at the Winkler Center for the History of Health Professions
- In observance of the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Act, UC Libraries have created a display on the 4th floor of Blegen Library celebrating the papers of Theodore M. Berry, noted Civil Rights pioneer, community activist, and elected official from Cincinnati. Ted Berry’s papers represent one of the notable collections in the Archives & Rare Books Library’s Urban Studies Collection.
The folloing exhibitions are hosted by outside institutions but feature UC Libraries special collections.
