History Lives in the Russell Library: This exhibit takes visitors on a trip back through many of the key events, perspectives, and people who have shaped the political landscape in Georgia , the nation and the world in the last century. Through original letters, documents, speeches, editorial cartoons, historical film footage, photographs, and artifacts this exhibit provides eyewitness perspectives on prohibition, the Cold War, the Kennedy Assassination, Watergate, segregation, the Civil Rights Movement, campaigning, space exploration and more!

Politics and Domestic Life in the Russell Library: Before the age of career politicians, public servants maintained separate lives from their Washington D.C. alter egos. During breaks from legislation, many returned to their day jobs as farmers, doctors, and lawyers and while away on the nation's business, their wives and children ran these enterprises. The selection of letters and photographs in "Politics and Domestic Life in the Russell Library Collections" highlights the personal side of politics. Virginia Rusk's annual Christmas letters shared feelings of excitement when her husband Dean was named Secretary of State by President John F. Kennedy but also recorded her feelings of shock and dismay two years later after Kennedy's assassination. In 1900, Dudley Mays Hughes lovingly addressed a letter to his niece, nicknamed "Miss Empire State of the South," and told her that "the Senate is hard at work" but he would be home soon. While her husband Herman was in Washington D.C. representing Georgia as a Senator, Betty Talmadge ran Talmadge Country Cured Hams based in their hometown of Lovejoy. In 1960 she submitted a recipe for the 1961 Congressional Club Cookbook for Baked Country Cured Ham, which informed cooks that they could soak the ham in water, wine, ginger ale, orange juice, apple cider, pineapple juice, peach pickle juice, Coca-Cola, or champagne and achieve a delicious meal.

Baldowski cartoon exhibit with a streaking theme, based on the University's affinity for it in '74.

Science Library : The Map Library is showcased, featuring maps, air photos and globes from the collection.  Patrons are invited to visit the Map Library in person or their web presence at http://www.libs.uga.edu/maproom/index.html.
