Past Exhibits

  • The Special Collections Research Center regularly acquires new materials for our University Archives, Manuscript, and Rare Book collections to provide valuable learning and research opportunities to the William & Mary campus community and beyond.
  • Wonderfully smart and insightful, and at times sad and painful, the queer comics on display in this exhibit were completed as part of a class assignment for Queer Comics (GSWS 290) in Fall 2016.
  • UnMade in Cuba is brought to you by W&M Libraries in partnership with the New Media Workshop, co-taught by Professor Ann Marie Stock (Hispanic Studies, Film and Media Studies) and Troy Davis (Director of Media Services).
  • Continuing our annual tradition of showcasing the books, this year’s exhibit reflects on the enduring popularity of Moore’s poem through its visual and narrative structure.
  • By considering Lady Skipwith’s ownership of books, how her library differed from those of men, and what it allowed her to do, we gain some insight into the intellectual life of elite women during an important period of American history.
  • The Cabell Family Papers in Swem’s Special Collections Research Center include correspondence, publications, genealogical records, literary manuscripts, accounts and land transactions, dating from 1693 to 1958.
