UCL Library Services has extensive archives including rare books, manuscripts, personal papers, historical records and artefacts across a range of subjects. Each year there are themed exhibitions in the Main Library that draw particularly on highlights from UCL Special Collections.  There are also both temporary and permanent exhibitions at other UCL libraries.  On occasion, the libraries arrange exhibitions at alternative UCL and external locations too.

The next exhibition in the Main Library will commemorate the start of World War I. Exhibits drawn from UCL Special Collections’ Little Magazines, College Archives and the 1914-18 Collection will be illustrative of the European Avant-Garde and the use of art as propaganda. More personal impressions of the Great War experienced at first hand and individuals from the roll of honour will also be profiled.

The exhibition will run from February to December 2014
