In 2019 we join the Department of Information Studies in celebrating 100 years since the opening of UCL’s School of Librarianship, with an exhibition narrating the history of our libraries from the earliest presence in the 1820s to the multi-site department of today. Built on foundations of donations and bequests, they hold significant collections including Frederic David Mocatta’s private library, and the Little Magazines. Key to their development, library spaces, librarians, researchers and students are also represented in this selection of items from UCL Special Collections.
