Exhibitions at Penn Libraries

The Exhibitions at Penn Libraries program aligns with the greater Penn Libraries mission of providing services and collections to further research, teaching, and learning to address the essential challenges and opportunities presented by a rapidly changing world. Exhibitions have a special place within the university community, as they facilitate learning in unique ways. Exhibitions often center around scholarship, collections, and people, but can adapt to tell many different types of stories.

This Guides page is geared toward helping those interested in launching an exhibition at Penn Libraries begin the process. All are welcome to apply.
