Work with Us
The Display Committee, in alignment with the Sturgis Library’s vision statement, strives to create, foster and maintain an inviting physical space in which students and faculty can feel comfortable and engaged while utilizing the Library and its resources. The subject and content of the displays should therefore reflect the interests of the university community.
Displays may originate from within the library, from any unit on campus, and/or from affiliates off campus. The display itself must support the charge of the Committee as stated above.
Beliefs and viewpoints expressed in the displays do not necessarily represent the opinions of the Display Committee, Horace W. Sturgis Library or Kennesaw State University.

All persons affiliated with KSU, including students, faculty, staff and officially recognized organizations/centers, are welcome to apply for display space at the Library. E-mail the current chair, Aajay Murphy, at email@example.com for more details.
Requests should be made as far in advance as possible and will be schedule on a first-come, first-served basis. Every attempt will be made to accommodate the preferred display date(s). The Display Committee reserves the right to refuse any proposal. Upon request, the Dean of the Library and the chair of the Display Committee will review questions that arise concerning a proposal’s acceptance or rejection.
Space availability will determine the duration of individual displays, but a month-long stint is typical. This will be discussed in detail with the chair, who will defer to the committee when needed. The Display Committee is responsible for scheduling setup and removal dates. If the display is not setup within three days following the agreed upon setup date, the Display Committee may cancel the display.
The setup and removal of the display are not the responsibility of the Display Committee. When using the display cases in Sturgis Library, the following guidelines must be respected:
The individual(s) who set it up, or a representative of, must remove the display. Storing materials for the display, either before setup or after removal, at the Library is not an option. Sturgis Library and the Display Committee will not assume any responsibility for damage of items unclaimed after three days following the agreed upon removal date.
The Display Committee will not censor or remove a display or item because certain members of the community may disagree with its content. Those who object to the content of an exhibit must contact the chair of the Committee, Aajay Murphy, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The chair will discuss the challenge with the Display Committee and with the Dean of the Library. The decision will be reported to the patron with the disagreement via e-mail. If the patron does not feel the complaint has been addressed, he/she will need to contact the Dean of the Library directly. At this point, the Display Committee will accept any decision made by the Library Administration.
