New Library Exhibit:
Building Visibility, One Book at a Time

Our new library exhibit just went up! Selections from the Permanent Collection: Building Visibility, One Book at a Time brings together anthologies of poetry that focus on female and female-identified writers. This exhibit is part of a larger social justice project begun in the Anthologies section this fall, in which we’re highlighting writers from historically underrepresented groups through a system of shelf markings and catalog notations.
