Lead Curator: MaryLynn Gagné
This exhibition will consist primarily of selected elementary and high school textbooks published in Saskatchewan and used in Saskatchewan's classrooms. In addition to showcasing uniquely Saskatchewan content, the exhibition will demonstrate how schoolbooks reflect prevailing teaching methods, educational philosophies and values through the decades. Most of the print resources are available in the Historical Textbook Collection. Selected archival resources should add interest to the exhibition, e.g. archival photographs and other material related to Saskatchewan educators who authored textbooks. Work on digitizing selected resources from the Historical Textbook Collection is in preliminary stages, so digitized content should also be part of this exhibition.

Lead Curator: Jill Crawley-Low
This exhibition is about the enduring relationship humans have with horses. The first horses were domesticated more than 3,000 years ago. Their beauty lends them to the mythologies of many cultures. They are a boon to advertising selling a wide range of products, and appear in films, plays, and historical re-enactments. They work, go to war, and offer therapy for damaged souls. They develop close relationships with humans who interact with them calmly and purposefully, and they enrich our lives. There is a wide variety of material in several library collections to draw on for this exhibition, including fiction and non-fiction, postcards and ephemera, photographs and other documentation about the University of Saskatchewan's horses, material about horses in art, and items from the Rosen Veterinary Medicine History Collection.

The University of Saskatchewan had only been offering classes for five years when war was declared in 1914. Inescapably, the Great War was a major turning point in the University's early history, and the walls of the Peter MacKinnon Building commemorate members of the U of S community who served. Over half of the male students, as well as over half of the male graduates, enlisted. The U of S, along with many other institutions, is marking the centenary of the whole war. There are many stories to tell. This exhibition will draw on collections documenting U of S participation, the war at home and abroad, the impact on the broader community, and more; with material including photographs, postcards, correspondence, memorabilia, books, and printed ephemera.
