On March 23, the University Library hosted the opening of an interactive, multimedia exhibit entitled “Preserving Identities.” The exhibit tells the story of the Romans through historical sites such as the Mausoleum of Santa Costanaza, the Colosseum, and several others. The guest speaker was Darius Arya, an archaeologist and educator based in Rome. His featured lecture was titled “Bringing Rome’s Museums to the World: New Media Streaming and Conversation.” The exhibit is a mix of artifacts, drawings and timelines and, with the help of your smart phone, visitors can scan a QR codes and learn more about these certain artifacts or places. The exhibit is now open on the third floor of the library and will be up until June.
