In celebration of RUSU’s ‘Liberate my curriculum’ conference on Wednesday 1 March, we’re asking students to suggest books, DVDs or CDs to help Library collections support a more diverse curriculum. Would you like more on your specialism representing more ethnic or LBGT groups or geographical areas? Complete our new Diversify my curriculum suggestion form to help us spend a special £1,000 fund, over and above resources supporting existing reading lists.
It’s great if you can suggest specific titles, but we still want to hear from you where you feel we just need more in a certain area. For example:
- [name] is underrepresented in your collection, can you buy more of her novels/poetry?
- I would like more books on the construction industry in Africa – are there any that can be bought?
- there aren’t any books on the history/political situation in [country]
- can you purchase some more books on LBGT issues in higher education?
Your subject Liaison Librarian will be dealing with your suggestions. She or he can also help you with other Library matters, including queries about items on reading lists.
If you would like to suggest other items for the Library, please complete our regular book suggestion form.
