  • Making the move from print to digital book displays

    Something we miss about being on-site is the opportunity to bring you monthly thematic book displays. We enjoy the creative outlet of curating them and, as the books fly off the shelves, we know you are reading our selections.

    Now that we are working at home, we’ve come up with a new plan to bring you virtual displays of e-book titles that you can read right now.

    Each month, we’ll share a link in our social media channels to a featured collection within Omni. First up for May, a collection of titles related to Food. It’s an eclectic grouping of titles around the business, chemistry, history, culture and psychology of food as well as food activism.

    We hope you look forward to each new collection and, find a title or two that pique your interest.

  • Celebrating trans authors on Trans Day of Visibility 

    Brock Library is celebrating Trans Day of Visibility – marked on March 31 annually — by highlighting books by trans authors in our collection. 

    Because Trans Day of Visibility highlights the accomplishments of trans people in all spheres, we want to specifically recognize the contributions of transgender authors to literature and scholarship. These titles represent a diversity of genres and topics, ranging from poetry to memoir, history to romance. Many of the authors spotlighted are Canadian, including Gwen Benaway, Vivek Shraya and Ivan Coyote. 

    Several of these titles are available as e-books for you to read from wherever you are. While the Library’s print books are currently unavailable due to public health measures during the pandemic, please tuck this list aside to check out in future. 

    This year’s theme for Trans Day of Visibility is “surviving, thriving” (#TransThriving). We hope that reading the words of trans authors enriches your own knowledge and encourages you to help the trans community survive and thrive. 

    For more information about this occasion, please check out Trans Student Educational Resources.
