Information Session: Yale Library Senior Exhibit Project

Information Session: Yale Library Senior Exhibit Project Online

Join us for an information session to learn about the Yale Library Senior Exhibit Project, which provides one student from the Class of 2022 with training in curatorial skills culminating in the production of an exhibit in Sterling Memorial Library based on their senior essay.

In this session you will have the opportunity to ask questions about the project, get tips for creating a successful proposal, and also review past senior exhibitions for inspiration. Librarians and archivists will also be available to answer any questions about how to find primary sources to include in proposal material or exhibits.

All information sessions will be on Zoom. Register for one of the dates below:
