Exhibits are scheduled in accordance with our Exhibit Procedure, often in coordination with the CBC Visual Arts department and CBC Office of Diversity & Outreach. Library exhibition agreement forms are available at the library. Visit our CBC Library News & Notes blog for examples of past displays and art exhibits.
The Library provides opportunities to individuals and organizations to display materials temporarily in designated display areas within the Library. Exhibits inform, educate, and promote the Library's information resources and services, and, at times, entertain. The exhibits provide an excellent opportunity for the Library to collaborate with other campus entities and community organizations. Exhibits are not accepted from for-profit organizations. For-profit organizations are defined as those whose primary purpose is the sale of property or services for monetary gain. The Library will not discriminate in making the exhibit areas available on the basis of race, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, political affiliation, or physical limitation. Use of the exhibit area does not constitute sponsorship or endorsement by Columbia Basin College or the Library.
Criteria for Selection
Exhibits in the Library will be selected using the purpose and goals as stated above. The following criteria will be considered as decisions are made, although not all exhibits will meet all criteria. The Library reserves the right to approve or disapprove all exhibit requests and to have final approval of the exhibit's duration, layout, and placement within the Library. All publicity created for the exhibit is subject to the approval of CBC's College Relations department.
Installation of Exhibit
Responsibility for setting up and dismantling of the exhibit lies with the exhibitor. The exhibitor will supply all tools and other materials needed for the exhibit. Library staff may suggest Library holdings that the exhibitor may consider adding to the display if they believe the materials can add to the quality of the exhibit.
Exhibitors are asked to be considerate of the multipurpose use of the Library. Conversations and noise should be kept at a minimum. Entrances and aisles may not be obstructed.
Exhibits may not be set up prior to the approved date and time. They must be removed by or on the scheduled removal date.
Responsibility for Loss or Damage
Each exhibitor agrees, as a condition of the display of their exhibit in the Library, that the Library and Columbia Basin College assume no responsibility for loss or damage to exhibited materials, and agrees to forever release and discharge the Library, Columbia Basin College, its officers, trustees, and employees from all such loss or damage.
Cancellation of Exhibits
The Library staff reserves the right to cancel any exhibit should conditions or situations, such as a unique exhibit opportunity or unforeseen need, warrant such action. If an exhibit is cancelled, the exhibitor will be, when possible, provided the opportunity to display their exhibit again for the full duration of the exhibit time originally scheduled, at the earliest convenience of the exhibitor and Library.
