There are two exhibitions currently on display at Olin and Uris Libraries.
Olin Library is home to “Foreign Fields: Perspectives on the Great War”.
This exhibition explores the cultural and political frontiers of World War I, examining its effects from a variety of national and transnational viewpoints. Highlights include a series of historic cartographic materials and original maps created using GIS to demonstrate the extent of the war’s reach. Other materials—diaries, letters, posters—reveal cross-cultural exchanges that reflect the war’s broad geographical scope, from Ottoman to Canadian, Australian to Bulgarian.
The “Book & Paper Conservation at Cornell” exhibit currently on display on the Gallery Level in Uris Library.
The exhibit showcases both bookbinding techniques and materials, and the development of hand papermaking, two craft traditions that greatly inform and direct conservation treatment practices.
Highlighting the work of the Cornell University Library Conservation Laboratory, the exhibition demonstrates a variety of bookbinding techniques and materials, papermaking and specialty papers used in library conservation, and paper and photograph conservation.
