News, updates and miscellaneous tidbits from RIT Libraries
RIT Museum Now Open!
The RIT Libraries celebrate the opening of the new RIT Museum, an environment for learning about the University's rich history. Located outside RIT Archive Collections on the third floor of Wallace Library, this space offers new opportunities to display artifacts, documents, photographs, and art that tell the story of RIT. The University's mission is to educate students, and using the Institute's traditional student focus as a starting point, the theme of the first exhibit in the new RIT Museum is RIT students. The objects and documents from RIT Archives on display offer tangible evidence of the academic and extra-curricular lives of the students throughout the University's history.
