The principal purpose of exhibitions held in the Ohio State University Libraries is to promote the collections and services of the Libraries and closely related organizations by bringing them to the attention of the University community and visitors. All focus on topics consistent with the overall scholarly and cultural concerns of the University and are, as a rule, drawn from the collections of the Libraries, supplemented as appropriate with materials from other sources.
