UK Disability History Month

To mark the UK’s Disability History Month, from 18th November – 18th December, we have put together a book display featuring books on disability history, across different geographic areas and time periods.

Disability History Month Book Display

As well as physical books, there are lots of e-books dedicated to Disability History. The e-books below are available to Oxford University members to read remotely- click on the book cover to access the SOLO record. You’ll need to sign into SOLO with your ‘Single Sign On’ to read the books. Of course, there are more titles available electronically and you can find them on SOLO, by searching for the subject ‘disability – history’

Find out more about UK Disability History Month on their website, including their online launch event this evening.

Black History Month Book Display

October is Black History Month in the UK and we have put together a display of books from the History Faculty Library’s collections which explore Black British history. You’ll find the display in the Upper Gladstone Link.

The university is hosting various online talks and events to mark Black History Month 2020. Margaret Casely-Hayford, CBE, will deliver the university’s Black History Month lecture. For information about this, and other virtual events taking place throughout October, follow this link.

Below are E-books on Black British history which are available to Oxford University members- simply click on the book cover to access the SOLO record. This is just a handful of what’s available. To find more, you could run a search for the subject ‘Blacks — Great Britain’ and filter the results to ‘online resources.’

Further, we would like to highlight the LibGuide for BME Studies which is part of the Bodleian’s ‘Changing the Narrative’ project championing diversity in collection development.
