The UNLV Lied Library hosted a rare traveling exhibit of the original First Folio of the works of William Shakespeare from 1623. This First Folio, printed seven years after Shakespeare’s death in 1616, includes thirty-six of his plays such as “Macbeth”, “As You Like It”, “Julius Caesar”, “The Tempest”, and "Twelfth Night”.

On September 24, 2016, the UNLV Upward Bound Math & Science Center (UBMSC) had the opportunity to receive a private tour of the exhibit. Dr. Su Kim Chung, head of special collections public services, reserved the entire afternoon for UBMSC. She provided a thirty-minute tour to four UBMSC groups of students and staff. Students actively participated and they were allowed to take pictures of this once in a lifetime event.
