    This post is the first in an ongoing series on "Public Library Archives Exhibits," for the Public Library and Special Collections Section's blog, The Finding Aid. This series will feature the many different ways in which public library archives and special collections utilize their collections through physical and virtual exhibits for public outreach. Specifically, PLASC is interested in providing our membership with examples of other institutions' exhibits that focus on underrepresented groups, overlooked history, archives and community joint-created exhibits, or feature innovative displays or designs. We are interested in exhibits that led to the development of new policies, new standards and workflows, or helped increase public interaction with your archives.

    You can submit your blog post ideas by email with the subject heading "Exhibit Blog Post" to the PLASC email address publibarchives@gmail.com.
