Rosen Library Exhibits

The Rosen Library staff aims to present exhibits that are both educational and entertaining. These exhibits are located just inside the entrance of the Library and typically run the length of an academic semester, or approximately three to four months.

Listed below are some past Rosen Library exhibits, along with links to any surviving brochures, photographs, webpages, or other related documents. Please note that most of the brochure documents were originally printed out on either 8.5x11 or 8.5x14 paper and then folded one or two times to create a brochure appearance.
