October 14 – December 30, 2013
In celebration of our 200th Anniversary, the HS/HSL will present an exhibit in the Weise Gallery titled, “Evolution and Influences: The HS/HSL at 200.” From October 14th through December 30th this installation, created in conjunction with the Campus Outreach and Public Affairs office, presents a history of the Library by contrasting its place in the history of the campus and the world at large. The exhibit traces the growth of the Library from a core collection of texts to its current incarnation serving five schools of the University of Maryland Founding Campus and housing NLM’s National Network of Libraries of Medicine’s Southeastern/Atlantic Regional Medical Library.
“Evolution and Influences” will demonstrate the innovation and metamorphosis of information exchange and availability and will explore the role of the Library in encouraging innovation in the dissemination of ideas. The Library has endured through two centuries of technological, social, and scientific advancement – this exhibit offers just a glimpse of its place at the precipice of change.
