The University of Memphis Libraries will, from time to time, set up displays and
exhibits in support of the educational mission of the University Libraries. These
displays and exhibits will showcase the holdings and activities of the Libraries,
or commemorate important events or persons in the life of the Libraries, The University
and the region. Displays and exhibits from outside the University Libraries will not
be allowed. This policy applies to all divisions of the University Libraries, i.e.
McWherter Library and its branches.
The Special Collections Department will maintain the displays and will set up the
majority of the displays and exhibits, but other library departments are welcome to
propose and devise appropriate displays. The display window on the fourth floor of
The McWherter Library (outside the entrance to the Special Collections Department)
will be the normal location of such displays, augmented by two free-standing cases
that are located in the west reading area of the second floor of the McWherter Library.
Displays and exhibits in the University Libraries will normally be advertised by way
of flyers and/or Daily Helmsman advertisements/features.
