Whose Voice Exhibit

Join UNI Museum for an opening reception for their latest exhibit Whose Voice? Remarks will be given at 4:15 p.m. 

Despite claims of neutrality, museums cannot deny how their colonial past has shaped their collecting and exhibiting practices. Whose Voice asks visitors to question who has the authority to be telling the stories of Indigenous cultures and how these stories are presented to the public.

Open Access Week

Open Access is a movement that encourages the unrestricted sharing of research results with everyone. The more people that can access and build upon the latest research, the more valuable that research becomes. Rod Library has continued to support Open Access by promoting and maintaining UNI ScholarWorks.
