Election season! In the mad rush that typifies the start of the Fall semester, it’s possible that you may have missed all of the election-year hubbub to date. Whether you have missed all the action or are just ready for the political season to be over with, your friendly neighborhood librarians/archivists are here to help. Our Fall exhibit, Campaign & Presidential Memorabilia, is now open and poised to alleviate that political season malaise.
Browse your way through buttons, stickers, license plates, letters & documents, and photographs that represent the right, the left, and points in-between. Start downstairs on the library’s first floor to see presidential letters and photographs. Slip on upstairs to the Special Collections (on the 2nd floor) to see the rest. Stay tuned for library-made, vintage-inspired campaign button giveaways as we get closer to the November elections.
In case you are the student (faculty member, community user, etc.) who likes to access our resources from the comfort of home, we’ve got you covered too. We have created an online exhibit that is serving as a companion to our in-house political exhibit. Visit the online exhibit here or check out all of our digital collection here. Though there are some duplicates, you’ll have to visit both exhibits to see it all!
