From Their Perspective: IDEAs Illuminating LMU’s Digital Collections

This summer, visit the library to explore our 10th annual “From Their Perspective” exhibit. This student-curated exhibit is designed to spark conversations between the university’s storied archival collections, the ingenuity of our student curators, and the diverse community beyond Loyola Marymount University.

This year’s exhibit, “IDEAs Illuminating LMU’s Digital Collections,” features artifacts including: newspapers amplifying student activism during the Black and Chicano student movements and stories created by faculty, students, and alumni from LMU’s Black, Latino/a and Latinx, Asian American and Pacific Islander, Indigenous, and LGBTQ+ communities.

These collections shine a light on historically underrepresented peoples, religions, and cultures made newly accessible through LMU Digital Collections as a part of the library’s commitment to providing access to inclusive histories, both locally and globally. Hear directly from students why these collections remain critically relevant and why it is essential to preserve them. This exhibit was made possible in part by the Bill Hannon Foundation.

The exhibit will be on display June 20 through September 20 in our Terrance L. Mahan, S.J. Gallery (library level 3). The gallery is open MondayFriday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. during regular business hours.
