UK Libraries continues Year of South Asia celebration

UK Libraries continues to celebrate the year of South Asia with both physical and virtual exhibits, according to Antoinette Paris “Toni” Greider, International Programs director.

“South Asia’s Heritage: A Selection of Books from UK Libraries Collectionhas been mounted in the atrium of the W.T. Young Library. This exhibit was created by Brad Allard, UK Libraries intern in the Reference Department. Brad also created a more extensive bibliography and a libguide to supplement the exhibit.

A visual presentation on UK Libraries’ involvement in the Arts & Science passport program is now showing on the video walls in the Hub. James Britt, senior technician in Digital Scholarship, has put together a presentation about “Passport to the World” showcasing the exhibits mounted in W.T. Young during the past six years. The presentation is a preview of all of the exhibits available through UKnowledge.

In addition, the “India Through the Eyes of Ellen Semple” exhibit is displayed at the W.T. Young Rose Street entrance.

Two more exhibits are in the final production stages for the Year of South Asia. “Early 20th Century British India” and “Gandhi’s India” are scheduled to be mounted early in 2017.  Watch for them on the video wall in the Hub or view them through UKnowledge.
