Exhibitions

The library hosts a variety of exhibits created or co-sponsored by University of Utah students and employees as part of its commitment to fostering vibrant and robust intellectual conversations on campus. External parties interested in proposing an exhibition are encouraged to seek a campus partner who is willing to cosponsor, sharing the responsibilities and costs.
