Grow(ing) Up! The UCLA Library Baby Record Books Collection
February - April 2014
This exhibit features examples from the large and unique baby books collection from Louise M. Darling Biomedical Library's History and Special Collection for the Sciences. This collection consists of nineteenth-to-twenty-first-century baby books - that is, memory books in which parents could record a child's activities and developmental milestones and which provided a place to gather photographs, locks of hair, and other mementos.
The books and their handwritten and pasted-in contents have been used for research and teaching in pediatrics, printing history, economic and social status, material culture, linguistics, architecture, advertising, folklore, depictions of family, and other topics and disciplines.
Do you have a baby book to donate to the collection? If so, contact exhibit curator Russell Johnson!

Helen S. and Alexander W. Astin Civic Engagement Scholars Program
January - March 2014
A poster exhibit which showcases the work of the Astin Scholars, a select group of UCLA undergraduate student who receive funding to conduct research on civic engagement topics during their senior year. Over the course of a full academic year, these students integrate experience gained from work at a community organization with academic scholarship and, with guidance from a faculty advisor, produce comprehensive research projects. The Astin Civic Engagement Scholars Program was named in honor of distinguished UCLA emeriti faculty Helen and Alexander Astin.
