Concierge 44: Creating Special Collections Exhibits by Becky Fischbach

February 6, 2018
by Ellie Buckley

This session will offer an overview of the “whys and hows” of planning, designing, and producing exhibitions for the Library’s Special Collections. For context, Becky will begin with a brief wayback (post-horse and carriage, pre-information superhighway) photo tour of exhibits in Stanford’s Main Library. She’ll describe the current exhibit program’s primary goals and address the question of where ideas for exhibits come from: who proposes them and how and why they are chosen, illustrated with examples.
