UCSB Library (Tower Gallery, 1st Floor)
Fall/winter 2015/2016

Held in conjunction with the opening of UCSB Library’s new and renovated buildings, this exhibition will celebrate the Library’s present and honor its past. Archival photographs from Special Research Collections will trace the history of the Library from 1954 to 2015 as both a structure and a center of research, culture, collaboration, and innovation. The Library was one of the first buildings on the present location of the UCSB Campus, and although technology, reimagined spaces, and student and faculty needs have transformed the Library through the years, it remains at the university’s heart.
