Past Exhibits

  • William & Mary Libraries’ Special Collections Research Center recently acquired 30 unpublished letters related to James Monroe, one of the College’s most famous alumni. Revealing new pieces of information throughout Monroe’s presidency, this collection of letters presents new and exciting opportunities for rediscovering America’s last founding father.
  • Scholarship On Display, located in Swem Library’s lobby, features publications and research from current faculty members in the Kinesiology & Health Sciences Department. 
  • Aaron Bayles '17 explores the connections that people create with locations around them and how we project positive emotions ("good vibes") onto these physical places through portraits of students in their favorite places on campus.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
