In 2021, the University Library presented the exhibit Not Just Another Day Off: Orange Shirt Day and the Legacy of Indian Residential Schools, in the Murray Library. The purose was to engage visitors to learn about the impact of the Indian Residential Schools through archival documents, published materials, and other physical items from the library’s collections. While the exhibit itself is no longer available, USask’s Media Production team captured the exhibit in a video narrated by the curators Donna van de Velde and Deborah Lee.
