Displays Policy

Selection Criteria

The Library Displays Working Group should consider the following factors when developing displays for the Seattle University Community. After careful consideration, the Displays Working Group has agreed to curate displays on their own merit, rather than creating displays in service of affinity months such as Black History Month, which allows us to prioritize displays that are intersectional and include many diverse voices in every display, representing the complexities and nuance of the human experience without tokenizing.

  • Prioritizes displays that represent a range of diverse voices, perspectives, topics, creators, and lived experiences in support of the Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Action Plan 

  • Educational content ranging from scholarly contributions to recreational or contemporary literature 

  • Relevance to Library collections, curriculum, emerging research areas, and student interests 

  • Broadness of appeal of the main theme 

  • Appropriateness of subject, technique, and style for intended audience 

  • Relation to other campus events or exhibits in relation to the SU community 

  • Representation of an influential movement, genre, trend, or culture 

  • An educational presentation is required; as appropriate, multiple viewpoints are represented 

  • Reflects vitality, originality, artistic expression, and experimentation 

  • Reflects the mission, vision, and values of Seattle University 

  • Does not proselytize or promote the religious or partisan political views of any single person or group 

  • Does not highlight content that is discriminatory, inciting racial or ethnic hatred, anti-LGBTQIA+, or promoting violence against groups 

  • Does not promote the financial profit of any individual, organization, or commercial enterprise
