WCU 150th Exhibition Lecture and Tour
Making of the Exhibit and Special Collections
University Libraries Special Collections holds many unique treasures, including hundreds of rare and culturally significant items. It also maintains a rich and ever-growing collection of items documenting the university’s 150-year history. Many of these are in our special sesquicentennial exhibition, WCU 150: History and Heritage. Take a tour of the exhibition with museum director Michael A. Di Giovine and student co-curators, where we will examine some of the most significant artifacts from our long history. Then join Special Collections librarian, Ron McColl, on an exclusive behind-the-scenes look “inside the vault”, where he will show some of the rarest and most valuable pieces in the collection and discuss his process of caring for these important artifacts.
