Online Site Support Notebook: Exhibit Display and Security Guidelines

Exhibitions may be displayed in a gallery or other open area in the library, but preferably not in a hallway.  No ALA exhibition is to be displayed outdoors or in a tent or other temporary structure.

Supervision by a guard or library staff member is required.  It is preferable that someone be in the room with the exhibition at all times—they may be performing other duties as well as monitoring the exhibition.  If that is not possible, we expect that a staff member or guard will walk around and monitor the exhibit periodically during the times it is open.  We suggest doing this at least every 15 minutes during times of peak library use and every half-hour at less busy times.
