Spring 2018 Exhibition

The Context Library Series is pleased to present The Laboring Self, on display March 14- July 1, 2018 in the library gallery. The Laboring Self is an interactive installation that draws parallels between unregulated labor and its effect on workers’ bodies in both the Industrial Revolution and Mechanical Turk workers on Amazon.com’s online job platform.

Library sound levels

The Library is a busy place, so it’s important to know where to go depending on whether you need a quiet place to study or a place where you can work with your group. Starting this semester, you’ll see signs around the building letting you know which floors are “quiet study” (4th and 5th), and which floors are “active study” (2nd and 3rd). You can also grab a free pair of ear plugs at the Check Out Desk or the Media Library Desk if you’re looking for “deep quiet.”
