Visitors are invited to explore in person Yale Library’s many new exhibitions now on view:

  • “Matters of Color/Color Matters, a student-curated exhibit in the Sterling Memorial Library Exhibition Corridor: Inspired by a course offered in Yale’s Department of the History of Art in fall 2021, the exhibit explores color in various disciplines and applications through objects from the collections of Yale Library, Yale Center for British Art, and Yale University Art Gallery.  
  • “Pasteur at 200” at Cushing/Whitney Medical Library, in the Medical Historical Library rotunda: Commemorates the work of French chemist Louis Pasteur (1822–1895) and his scientific legacy, which we still benefit from today.
  • “Subjects and Objects: Slavic Collections at Yale, 1896–2022” in the Hanke Gallery, Sterling Memorial Library: Explores how the Slavic collections of objects, ephemera, and manuscripts in Yale’s libraries and museums chronicle lived experiences.
  • “The World in Maps: 1400–1600” at Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library: Showcases many of the collection’s most historically significant manuscript maps from the late medieval and early modern periods.
