New digital exhibitions

February 17, 2021

From rare books to political cartoons, queer narratives to women’s history, there’s something for everyone in the University Libraries’ newly published digital exhibitions.

Even though the doors are closed, you can still experience the range and depth of the special collections. While the pandemic has put a pause on in-person exhibitions, curatorial staff have been ramping up production of digital equivalents. You can explore them safely, day or night, and with no need to find parking.

A list of recently published exhibitions follows:

And be on the lookout for these upcoming digital exhibitions in spring 2021:

  • Archival Seedlings: Cultivating Community Archivists in the American South
  • Documenting Disruption: Preserving Family Histories in Hard Times
  • Enriching Voices: African American Contributions to North Carolina Literature
  • On the Move: Stories of African American Migration and Mobility
  • Race Deconstructed: Science and the Making of Difference

When the exhibitions program resumes, expect to see a digital correlate for each future in-person exhibition in the Wilson Special Collections Library. It’s one more way the University Libraries is working to make its collections more accessible.
