Contact: | |
There are multiple exhibit spaces in the Medical Library and Archives. There are permanent exhibits including Apothecary Jars in the lower lobby, a Medicinal Herb Garden Exhibit in the History of Medicine reading room terrace, a History of Stereotactic Neurosurgery, 65th General Hospital, Undersea and Hyperbaric medical Society; Schilling Library Memorabilia all on the 1st stack level, a Zeiss Microscope on the balcony and more exhibits in the Trent Room in the lower level room 102. There are also new exhibits (constantly changing) in 4 cases of the lower lobby, 1 case in the main lobby, 3 cases in the mezzanine and a Milia wall with 6 light gray modules (each 40 inches wide by 8 feet tall) also located in the mezzanine.
Virtually all our exhibit space is dedicated to sharing and marketing our historical and archival materials. The only space available for guest exhibits is the mila wall. (Currently unavailable due to construction in the library.) Any exhibits would have to be related to health sciences/medicine. Items displayed on the wall would need to be two dimensional and could not be secured since there is no way to enclose anything. The wall itself is set up in an area which does not have close supervision. We have not yet developed a policy. All exhibits can be viewed at any time the Library is open with the exception of the Trent Room which is open only during the posted hours for the History of Medicine Collections or by special appointment. The herb garden can be visited at any time by way of the outside staircase to the left of the Searle Center entrance.
Location: Perkins Library (corridor outside of the Perk)
Contact: Meg Brown, Exhibits Coordinator | email@example.com | 919-681-2071
The exhibit cases in the Perkins Gallery were purchased with a generous grant from the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation. The space includes 3 table cases, 4 small pedestal cases, and 2 upright cases. All cases are locked and have security alarms, but this is a public space with 24-hour access. This space is most appropriate for 3 dimensional objects such as books and manuscripts.
Exhibits in the Perkins Gallery support the scholarly, historic, social, and cultural concerns of the University. Many of the exhibits are sponsored by Library departments to publicize the richness and diversity of the collections, or to highlight services in the libraries, or to share interesting research in the libraries or the greater University community. Members of the University and greater local community may also curate exhibits if the exhibit is in support of the libraries mission.
