The AGSL often displays materials from its holdings. These exhibits usually follow some theme, and can include a variety of materials such as maps, charts, atlases, photographs, realia, etc. They are on display within the AGSL on the third floor, East wing of the Golda Meir Library.
Current Exhibit in the AGS Library
“Visualizing the Moon” features lunar maps, atlases, books, globes, and photographs. This is in conjunction with Marcy Bidney’s presentation on “Imagining the Moon: A History of Lunar Visualizations,” which is co-sponsored by the UWM Planetarium as part of their event series celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing. The exhibit will be up through April 19.
Academic Adventurers Exhibits

Displays, Presentations, and Tours
Tours, presentations and displays are available to UWM classes, area colleges, community groups, and schools.
