During Fall 2019 and Spring 2020, the library invited small groups of undergraduate students to curate scholarly book displays around a particular theme in connection with a particular course or program. Books chosen for a display that the library didn't own were ordered by the library. Displays remained up for one month and included student photos and bios, as well as information about the course that the students were taking. The library hopes such displays will generate more student interest in our collection while also promoting the wide range of interesting courses offered at SJU.
Latin American Politics: A Student-Curated Display was a joint project of the students of POL331, Dr. Richard Gioioso, and Catherine Collins, Librarian Liaison to the Political Science Department in Fall 2019.
