Exhibitions

THE JOHN CARTER BROWN LIBRARY staff and invited curators prepare public exhibitions of material selected from the collections.

The Library’s newest exhibition, "Off to College: Higher Education in the Americas, 1551-1825," examines the differences and similarities between institutions of higher learning in the Americas. This exhibition was created to complement the celebrations for the 250th anniversary of the founding of Brown University. Visit this exhibition in the Reading Room from April 2014 to October 2014.

Recent exhibitions may also be visited virtually. The online version serves as a record of an exhibition and ensures that our audience will be able to view the treasures of the John Carter Brown Library from any place on earth with internet access.
