Growing Branches: A History of Smith College's Specialty Libraries


Joining Neilson Library in its centennial celebration, the branch libraries are hosting their own historical exhibitions. Each of Smith College’s branch libraries has its own unique history and place within the scholarly community. The exhibitions give some background of the events and people behind their founding, and the physical spaces they have occupied over the years.



This web exhibition is based on physical exhibitions that were on view in the Smith College branch libraries from 24 November 2009 through 19 March 2010. The exhibits were created by Lisa DeCarolis, Circulation Coordiator for Hillyer Art Library, with material from the Smith College Archives. Leslie Fields, Records Services Archivist at the Smith College Archives, created the online exhibition.
