Exhibits reflect the scholarly, historical, social, and cultural concerns of Mount Wachusett Community College and its community. Their purpose is to promote interest in the use of the collections and services of the LaChance Library. Exhibits function to educate, enlighten, enrich, and to broaden the Library and MWCC’s appeal to the community, while increasing awareness and access to library services and the library collection. This policy applies to the two exhibit cases located in the hallway outside of the LaChance Library, and the common areas within the library.
The LaChance Library supports the American Library Association's recommendations for Intellectual Freedom Principles for Academic Libraries, which states that "Freedom of information and of creative expression should be reflected in library exhibits and in all relevant library policy documents."
The Exhibit Committee is designated to facilitate exhibitions and will review all exhibit proposals. The Exhibit Committee will determine if the proposed exhibit is consistent with the overall scholarly and cultural concerns of MWCC. The Committee may request that changes be made in the interest of aesthetics, content, installation, and general appropriateness. The Committee retains complete authority over evaluation, interpretations, implementations, selection, and scheduling of all exhibitions.
