The Special Collections and University Archives department launched the library’s digital exhibits program in 1998 with “Today’s Seeds for Tomorrow’s Harvest.” Since then, the library has developed digital exhibits that help to tell the stories found within the library’s unique, rare, and uncommon materials.
Some of these exhibits are nearly 20 years old. As time passes, websites decay. All of the historical exhibits below include a link to the preserved version of the website in the university archives’ web archives.
