This conference session provides insight into the design and management of a library exhibit series program, demonstrated by the library exhibit series at the San Marcos Campus Library of the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences. Guided by best practices from the scholarly literature, an exhibit series program should serve as works of in-depth scholarship with enduring value. The exhibit series engages students in a self-guided journey to discover and evaluate how knowledge is constructed, produced, and disseminated.


This presentation was a 30-minute session presented at the Learning Revolution online conference on May 8, 2020.
