This exhibit represents the collaboration between Photography and University Libraries faculty to integrate research and information literacy into the creative process. Through a series of library instruction sessions, students not only learn how to navigate library resources, but also the significance of research in their discipline. It can help artists understand the historical and contemporary context of their work. Also, research across disciplines is an important way for artists to develop their artistic vision and discover new and empowering sources of inspiration. The pieces in this exhibit were created by students in the School of Art and Design.
I hope to see many of you at the Reception!
If you can't make it to the reception, the show will be available for viewing during the normal Library Hours the days previous to the show and a few days afterwards, the hours for the NIU library are available on the NIU Libraries website!
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
