Creating Library Media Exhibits

Wednesday, March 29 | 9:15AM–10:05AM | Room 554
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Standard Presentation
Media-rich exhibits open up new possibilities for libraries to showcase their schools' treasures. Protected assets such as historical manuscripts can be copied and inserted into digital exhibits along with stunning photography, video clips, and graphic elements, all of which combine to lend a vibrancy not formerly possible in glass boxes. Media exhibits offer an opportunity for designers, librarians, and university faculty and staff to work together to curate information and make it available to the public in a unique and attractive way. This presentation will describe the process of creating a media exhibit, from curating to designing to seeing it live.

Outcomes: Identify key stakeholders in the exhibit planning stage * Devise a workflow for the creation of a successful media exhibit * Recognize the value of individual textual and visual elements in a media exhibit
