On the second floor of Randall Library, between Special Collections and the Auditorium, an existing exhibit space has been renamed. The Sundial Gallery, named for the newly installed sundial (made possible by the Reda family) in front of DeLoach Hall and visible from Randall's east-facing windows, has been newly painted and will receive museum-quality window treatments and exhibit cases in the coming weeks.
The Sundial Gallery's inaugural exhibit, tentatively scheduled for Spring 2016, will feature items from the congressional collection of Mike McIntyre, donated to UNCW and Randall Library Special Collections in the fall of 2014. The collection spans McIntyre's career representing North Carolina's 7th district as member of the United States House of Representatives. The collection contains photographs, artifacts, congressional awards and recognitions and will allow students, faculty, staff and other researchers to better understand the legislative process and southeastern North Carolina's history.

We look forward to seeing you in the Sundial Gallery, and please remember that the second floor of Randall Library is dedicated quiet space for our users.
