Exhibition themes wanted

By Helen Biggs, on 27 November 2017

The Exhibitions Group currently oversees the annual exhibitions that run in the Main Library, with input from UCL Special Collections, from whose collections the majority of exhibition items are drawn.

Hopefully by now you have had a chance to see the current exhibition, East side stories: Londoners in transition, which is open until December 15. This exhibition has not only been an opportunity to show off some of our lesser-known items, but also to build community links in Newham.

Our 2018 exhibition, “Dangers and Delusions”? Perspective on the women’s suffrage movement, will mark the 100th anniversary of the Representation of the People Act 1918, and explore how the women’s suffrage movement was perceived through the 19th and 20th Centuries. The 2019 exhibition will focus on the history of academic libraries. We’re now looking at our program of future exhibitions, and we’re inviting the input of our library colleagues for our 2020 and 2021 exhibitions.

If you have an idea for a future exhibition, we’d love to hear it. Typically, our exhibitions are drawn from subject areas of particular interest to UCL, or from upcoming anniversaries, where we have Special Collections materials that support them.

For more information, or to make a suggestion for a future exhibition, get in touch with Exhibitions Group secretary Helen Biggs by January 26th.
