State of the Libraries
Dr. Potter will deliver the State of the Libraries address Aug. 9 at 10 a.m. in room 101, SLC. A reception will follow in the Reading Room.
Main Library: The Digital Library of Georgia and the New Georgia Encyclopedia will be the focus of a new exhibit in the cases in the Main lobby.
Russell Library: “What’s in a Flag: The History of Georgia’s Flag 1956-2004.” Never has the power of symbols in society been so evident as in the contentious and continuous revisions to the designs of the Georgia flag. From the first flag to the current one, there have been eight different designs with some engendering significant controversy among factions in the state. This exhibit features collection items from state representative Janet Merritt, state representative Louise McBee, Gov. Zell Miller, and editorial cartoonist Gene Basset.
Science Library: What are white dwarfs?
Do spiders really use silk draglines to fly through the air?
Why are bats more like primates than like rodents?
How likely is human genetic engineering?
The answers to these and other questions are to be found
in "The Science of Superheroes," a new exhibit at the UGA
This exhibit follows the links between scientific
developments (and the social anxiety they have sometimes
spawned) and some of our most popular superheroes.
From the preposterous to the probable, the silly to the
downright scary, the science of superheroes is unveiled in
this entertaining exhibit, created by Mary Miller and the ASSET Awards
