The department of Special Collections and University Archives routinely curates exhibits that are located in the lobby of the Main Library and the Methodist Center. These exhibits showcase our materials and have featured topics such as Student Life, Methodism in the Civil War, the Book of Common Prayer, and Women’s Graphic Novels. We invite collaboration for new exhibits, either as a class assignment or for guest curators to propose exhibits to the department. To propose an exhibit, please contact
