Ohio University has a rich history in Africa. The exhibit looks at Ohio University activities in Africa from the 1950s-1980s. Using materials from the Libraries' collections, the exhibit displays the major milestones, projects, collaborations, and partnerships with African institutions. It will include the university’s first international project, a contract to develop the education infrastructure in Nigeria; other significant technical services to educational development in several African countries. These activities are the foundations that impacted and shaped the growth of the African collection in the Libraries.
