Summer in the Library

By Jes Cooban, on 24 June 2015

01-summer-newsletterThe summer issue of UCL Library Services’ Newsletter is now available.

Read all about the scintillating launch of the first fully open access university press in the UK, discover insights into UCL’s early champions for the creation of the NHS and see how the Library’s Strategy on Outreach is making a real difference to sixth form students in London. And we have packed lots of news on our Special Collections, in print and online, spanning from the Neolithic Age in the Orkneys to Jewish collections on show in London and in Barcelona, with a special feature about some beautiful and humorous digital exhibitions created by UCL BASc students as part of their course. We also feature the latest exhibition from our Queen Square Library and a new training facility in our Joint Library of Ophthalmology.
