The Maverick Lens: Views from the Library
"The Maverick Lens" is an annual photo exhibit designed to reflect the diversity of learning, living and working at UT Arlington. Each year, "The Maverick Lens" series will announce a theme and solicit photographs from students, staff and faculty for an exhibit to be held at the Central Library. Submissions will be juried by a committee of staff, faculty and students.
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the UT Arlington Library the inaugural theme of "The Maverick Lens" is "Views from the Library". We invite all photographers of the UT Arlington community to interpret and submit work, in any photographic media, on this theme.
While the exhibit theme will vary from year to year, its basic function will remain the same: to teach us about who we are, where we come from and how we relate to UT Arlington. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to submit photographs for consideration and to share their unique viewpoint about what it means to be a part of our university community. "The Maverick Lens" is an invitation to think, reflect and talk about our shared home.

*The Maverick Lens is sponsored by the Central Library and the Department of Modern Languages.
Making Mavericks: Expanding horizons at UT Arlington
From the time of its inception, UT Arlington has had a relationship with the city of Arlington and its leaders. In 1895 Edward Rankin, in an effort to improve education in Arlington, approached Lee Hammond and William Trimble about starting a private school. Investors soon lined up, and thus began Arlington College. With seventy-five students and one two-story wood frame building built where University Center now stands, the college embarked on a journey of campus improvement and student enrichment. From a graduating class of eight young men, to a diverse student body of 33,239, UT Arlington has grown well beyond what its founders early conceived. "Making Mavericks: Expanding horizons at UT Arlington"� explores the growth and development of the University under its various presidents.
"Making Mavericks: Expanding horizons at UT Arlington"� is located in Special Collections, 6th floor, UT Arlington Central Library and runs through April 27, 2013. Hours are 9 a.m - 7 p.m Monday and 9 a.m - 5 p.m Tuesday through Saturday. This exhibit is free and open to the public. For more information call 817-272-3393.
The 6th floor of the Central Library will close for a Life Safety project from May 13th - Aug. 2nd, 2013. Special Collections will close a few days earlier on May 10th. The floor will be inaccessible during construction time.
Due to the construction staff will be relocated. Administration staff will move to the 516 suite. Special Collections staff will be relocated to various parts of the library. The exhibits and other materials will not be available during this time. The Center for Southwestern Studies will move to the History Department in University Hall.
Due to staff relocations the group study room 414A will not be available for the summer.
