“Visions of the Universe: Four Centuries of Discovery” Site Support Notebook

Important exhibit display information: The first date of your exhibit display period is a Wednesday. This is the last day for the exhibit to be delivered to you by the library preceding you on the itinerary. Please do not plan programs on Wednesday. You can schedule programs for Thursday evening, but please do not plan programs early on Thursday in case of delivery problems (they are rare, but do happen). Friday openings and programs are the best, but you may open the exhibit whenever it suits your local schedule. This exhibit will take 2 people approximately 45 minutes to unpack and set up.

The last date in your exhibition period is a Friday, which may be the closing date for the exhibition (you may close the exhibit earlier if you wish). Libraries should have the exhibition dismantled and ready for pick-up on the Monday after the exhibition closes. You will be contacted by the exhibit shipper for pickup and delivery times, and the shipper will send waybills with correct addresses to you to affix to the shipping boxes for onward shipping.
