Our new exhibit for Winter Quarter 2015 is entitled “Viruses, Present and Past: Outbreaks and Responses.” In the wake of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, this exhibit provides information about Ebola in a larger context by examining the cultural impact of various types of viruses and the ways in which people have, over time, responded to them. We have two cases of items to examine, books to check out, a slideshow and a LibGuide with further information, and songs created in response to the Ebola outbreak.
