LGBT+ History Month book display

Posted on March 9, 2018 | in Uncategorized | by

Following the success of the Main Library’s Black History Month ‘micro-exhibition’ in October, which was co-hosted with student groups LiberatEd and Project Myopia, the Library is currently displaying books for LGBT+ History Month.

The pop-up display features a selection of books from the Library’s collections, and encourages students not only to look at what the Library holds, but to browse and borrow readings.

This is part of a broader nationwide movement to diversify university curricula , which is being driven at Edinburgh by students from the EUSA LiberatEd group and Project Myopia:

The Library is looking forward to continuing our work with these groups and to hosting further themed, pop-up displays to highlight our wide-ranging collections.

The LGBT+ History Month display will be in the Library foyer from Monday 26 February. A resource list of some of the readings available can be found here:
