Events and exhibitions

UCL Special Collections run a busy programme of public and academic events, from exhibitions, public talks and open days, to collection displays at conferences and a summer Rare-Books Club.

A group of young women looking at an exhibition held in UCL Main Library. The exhibition is titled 'Dangers and Delusions' and is about the women's suffrage movement. Books, photographs and magazines are on display.
