The Library is currently working with faculties, departments and individual staff and students to diversify our collections...
We are keen to support academic staff in the decolonisation of module reading lists and students as they research a diverse range of topics that reflect their own interests and experiences.
We have recently gained access to over 12,000 e-books which cover themes relating to the decolonisation of the curriculum and also broader issues around equality, diversity and inclusion. The titles in this package have been selected from a wide range of publishers, including many from outside of Europe and North America. All of the e-books are included in Library Search, and when someone logs into a particular title a purchase is automatically triggered and that item then becomes a permanent part of the Library’s e-book collection.
If you would like to find out more about this initiative, please join us on Wednesday 9th June, 11am.
We will be explaining how it works, how to find out what’s available on a particular topic, and how the resource could benefit your teaching and research. There will also be an opportunity to start selecting content during the session.
Please register for the session to receive the Zoom link.
In addition, you may also wish to have a look at our new library guide to resources for decolonising the curriculum. We are hoping that this will be an ongoing, collaborative project, and we would welcome input from academic staff and students, so do let us know if there’s anything you would like us to add to it.
