The following exhibits are free and open to the public during regular business hours.
Last year, students of the Cleveland Institute of Art’s Illustration Department were inspired by a local book collector's exceptional collection of illustrated Lewis Carroll books. The resulting project was a book, Alice, which contains new illustrations to Lewis Carroll’s works by the students. Prints of the students’ work are displayed in the gallery, and additional student works can be found on display throughout the library.
Presented by Kelvin Smith Library, “Universities at War” is an exhibit that investigates the messages students received about the war through various print culture media. Posters, postcards, literature, advertisements, flyers and pamphlets will be on display, as well as university curriculum and student responses through yearbooks and other student publications. The exhibit also features a collection of WWI propaganda posters generously loaned by Stan Berger.
Join us for the following special events! Click here to RSVP.
These events are free and open to the public with valid photo ID. The “Universities at War” exhibit will be open during regular business hours beginning Friday, Sept. 19.

The Freedman Center for Digital Scholarship at Kelvin Smith Library will host its 2014 colloquium, Pedagogy and Practices, on November 6-7. Presented in collaboration with the University of Rochester, Vanderbilt University and Washington University in St. Louis, the event will bring together both faculty and librarians across disciplines to discuss instructional methodologies and strategies for using digital tools in humanities, science, and social science classrooms. Our diverse group of presenters from institutions across the United States and Canada will be presenting on a wide range of topics, including:
Join the conversation! Mark your calendar for a national colloquium to explore the factors that have governed the growth and use of special collections of the past, as well as the current and emerging challenges for special collections in the future. Digitization has created a greater emphasis on increasing exposure and access to special collections, but despite these efforts, many special collections are not yet fully discovered. Your participation in this colloquium will help acknowledge the historic strengths of special collections of the past and chart a course for the next decade and beyond!
The colloquium webpage will be continuously updated with the latest information.
