Clements Library Online Exhibits

In addition to regular exhibits in the Main Room of the library, the Clements also offers a variety of online exhibits through the library website. These are listed on the Exhibits page of the library website, along with the current and past exhibits presented in the library. Online exhibits provide a portal into the collections of the Clements Library, bringing together a variety of manuscripts, prints, photographs, books, and maps on a particular theme. For those who can't come to the library in person to see our exhibits, this can be a great way to get an introduction to our collections. For more information, see the list of our online exhibits below.
