The Sterling Memorial Library (SML) Exhibits Committee provides oversight and support for the exhibition program that provides content for the Memorabilia Room and Student Exhibit Corridor in Sterling Memorial Library. The membership comes from across the Yale University Library (YUL) system and is led by the Exhibits Production Coordinator. The membership rotates annually, with members serving staggered two year terms. Additionally, the Library’s Director of Communications and Director of Undergraduate Research Education and Outreach are permanent committee members.
The Committee performs these tasks:
Increases use of SML exhibit venues by YUL staff, Yale faculty and students, and Yale-affiliated groups
Coordinates communication about the programming and use of the SML exhibit venues
Reviews exhibition proposals to ensure that programming reflects and supports teaching and research at Yale
Establishes and maintains appropriate guidelines for the use of exhibition venues and the handling of objects on display in SML
Supports the Library Exhibits Liaison as needed
