Let the reader emerge! Milestones of the Syracuse University Libraries

Bird Library (1st Floor)

02-03-2020 to 06-30-2020


The sesquicentennial of a university gives reason to reflect upon the origins and growth of one of the core stakeholders of the academic learning process – the University Library. This exhibit traces the major milestones of the Syracuse University Libraries as a growing learning space. It is about a library as an institution that in the course of its service to the university had to overcome many constraints in order to put its patron, the ‘reader,’ first.
