Several digital exhibitions highlight the USC Libraries' unique collections. Built on the robust Scalar platform, these projects demonstrate some of the possibilities of working with library people, expertise, and technology capabilities. Library faculty and staff, for example, developed one digital exhibition around Japanese posters in collaboration with a USC Art History course. Another project, about the "altogether shocking history of women's mental health," was adapted from a physical exhibition in Doheny Library's Treasure Room. Many others were curated by the very archivists and librarians who processed the underlying collections, offering special insight into the materials.
