Artifacts from the RMS Titanic, which sank 100 years ago this month, are on exhibit on the first floor of Rowan University’s Campbell Library through May 11.

The exhibit, which is open to the general public, includes items from the collections of Joe Robinette, an emeritus Rowan theater professor, and Lori Yeager, a Rowan alumna. The library is open to the general public each day until 7:30 p.m.

Robinette and Yeager will discuss their artifacts during a presentation on Tuesday, April 10, at 4 p.m. in Room 226 of Campbell Library.

Two Titanic-themed film screenings also will be presented. The screenings are open to the public, but seating is limited.

On Friday, April 13, at 3 p.m., “Titanic: How it Really Sank,” a documentary produced by National Geographic, will be shown in Campbell Library Room 226. On Saturday, April 14, “A Night to Remember,” a film produced by William MacQuitty, will be shown at 2 p.m., also in Room 226. The screening of “A Night to Remember” has been generously funded by Robinette and his wife, Helen.

The largest passenger steamship at the time of her sailing, the RMS Titanic struck an iceberg and sank on April 15, 1912. More than 1,500 lives were lost.
