Exhibit of Spotlights
These miscellaneous photographs and the copy along with them are featured individually as "spotlights" on Carpenter Library's homepage. The Spotlight area on the home page is toward the bottom right and it is changed about once every six weeks.
The photographs for the Spotlights come from a collection called Subject File Photographs. As the name implies, there are various topics within the collection - people, events, objects, etc. Using these photographs in Spotlights is a nice way to display them since the topics vary.
