They Didn't Teach Me This in Library School: Managing a Library Art Gallery

It seems a natural fit to have artwork in libraries. At Sonoma State University Library, in Rohnert Park, California, we have committed to an art gallery in order to support the liberal arts and sciences mission of the university. The library's exhibits explore a diverse range of ideas, values, and intellectual and artistic expressions. In working with artists, curators, educators, and collectors from the community, we provide unique possibilities for supporting learning and discovery, and we give students, faculty, and community members yet another reason to visit our library.
