Revealing and Expanding Diversity in our Library Collections: Black History Month 2018

Posted on October 8, 2018 | in Uncategorized | by

It’s Black History Month, and to celebrate diversity in the University’s collections we now have a new book display in the Main Library foyer. This follows on from the success of our Black History Month ‘micro-exhibition’ with EUSA last year.

Our latest display is part of a project where the Library is working with EUSA to reveal, and further expand, the diverse collections which the Library holds. This month, we have a selection of texts on display, from works by Chinua Achebe to Zadie Smith, and a number of new purchases for the Library’s collections.

We also have a resource list, detailing many of the items on display:
