October 11th 2010 Exhibit presentationsFinal Assigment- Dolmen Press Exhibit due Wed. Oct. 11th Working with your group, design, research and install a library exhibit on Reynolds Level 4 in the display cases. Your exhibit on the Dolmen Press artists and poets should contain all the elements we discuss in class: the heading, focal point, photos, an accompanying book, text summary, etc. In designing your exhibit on Dolmen Press artists and poets, you should use at least 10 scholarly sources which you will list in a properly formatted bibliography according to MLA style as part of the exhibit project. These should all be sources that you are confident in their ability to help you answer your research question, not just sources that are vaguely about your topic! On the day your exhibit is due, the class will assemble by the exhibits, and each group will give a short presentation to the class (5-10 minutes) about their work.
