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.
