Citizen Curator Project: Call for Participation

The Citizen Curator Project of Central Florida invites Citizen Curators to create a series of exhibitions for display at the John C. Hitt Library, the UCF Art Gallery, and online focused on the theme “Eliminationism and Resistance.” A particularly potent example of eliminationism, defined as social policies that seek to censor, suppress, exile, or exterminate others, is the recent Pulse nightclub attack, whereas the Orlando United campaign may be viewed as an act of resistance and reconciliation.

We urge participants to experiment, not only with a range of perspectives on the theme and historical source material, but also with the idea of what an exhibit can be. Anyone with an interest in affecting social change through exhibitions can be a Citizen Curator. This includes, but is not limited to, students, artists, activists, educators, and members of the community. No previous experience with curating is required.

How to Apply

To apply, email a 250-word description of your project to citizencurator@cah.ucf.edu by February 15, 2017. Please include the type of materials you will be using, the desired or proposed location of your exhibit (UCF Art Gallery, John C. Hitt Library, online, other galleries or venues of your choice), your vision (include a sketch or image if applicable), and how your project relates to the theme “Eliminationism and Resilience.” Individuals or small groups are welcome.

This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

New Technology Lending Page

Welcome back students!

We hope you enjoyed your time off during the break. While you were away, we finished up our latest new feature for the UCF Libraries website, the Technology Lending Page. This new feature will allow you to see all of the technology items we have available for checkout at the John C. Hitt, Rosen, and CMC libraries.

Along with the name and photo of each item, you can see its loan period and availability for checkout (for most items). You can also sort items by location,  tech type, loan period, and eligiblity.

Now some of you may be thinking, “This feature isn’t new, it was on the website last semester”. This is true, we did make this feature live last semester but there were still some minor issues to take care of and we didn’t want to formally announce it until it was ready.

We hope that you enjoy our new Technology Lending feature of our website. Click the button below to get started.

(Look for this button on our homepage for quick access.)
