During  October, the Main Library have been displaying books which have been donated to the Library by the University’s African Caribbean Society (in association with EUSA Global). There are approximately 40 books being displayed as part of Black History Writers Month,  these are part of the New Books Display  in  the 4 bays near the door to the 1st Floor landing.

Each October, Black History Month aims to raise awareness and facilitate conversation among the University community to mark the achievements of Black people through history and today, and we are delighted to support this initiative. There is a great assortment of books, which we’re sure you’ll find interesting.

If there are any queries about the display, please  contact Nicola Moncur: (nicola.moncur@ed.ac.uk)

Many thanks to Shenxiao Tong, Maria & Agnieszka from Collections Management and Melissa Moncrieffe from EUSA for making this possible.
