“From The Stacks”: Opening Up Our Collection

One of the exciting new features of the first-floor renovation is a purpose-built space to introduce visitors to the Newberry collection on a rotating basis. We have designed a gallery that will always showcase representative examples, chosen by curators, from across the collection. The selections will rotate four times each year for conservation reasons, making it possible to display many collection items over a period of time. Come hear about the concept, the distinctive design, and the collaborative process that characterize this initiative; and learn about the items selected for the first rotation.
