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.

Call for Proposals

The Exhibits Sub-Committee is accepting proposals for two slots in Thompson Gallery in the 2017 academic year. This is an opportunity for all Library faculty and staff. Proposals are due Friday, October 30, 2015.
