Olin Library

The primary purpose of Olin's exhibits is to inform library patrons and visitors about the resources available in the University Libraries.

Lobby Cases

The Olin Lobby Cases are best suited to formally displaying books, photographs, small posters, drawing, maps, objects, similar materials of reasonable size, and any materials of monetary value. The four doors of each case are secured by a lock on each door. A thick piece of glass protects the top of the case, while each side of the case is comprised of wood. Each case measures 5'7 (length), 2'8 (Width), 6 (depth). The cases reside on the east side of the Olin Library lobby.

  • Relate to the mission of the library and/or the university,
  • Be aesthetically pleasing,
  • Display material relevant to the theme of the exhibit,
  • Promote the collections, services, and functions of the library.
