Belk Library’s Winter Term book display features books about diversity as it relates to culture, education, family, gender, media, the workplace, and more. Our collection also includes a number of books by Elon’s visiting speakers.
A few of the books are pinned on our Pinterest board. Stop by Belk Library and check out a book today!
Belk Library is busy this summer. Our biggest project is related to the Writing Excellence Initiative. To create room for expanded writing, research and technology collaboration, we are removing print reference books that are duplicated electronically as well as reference items that are no longer relevant to the teaching and scholarship of the University. The view when you walk in the front door will be quite different by the end of the summer. We’re excited about the changes and the new ways we will be able to use the space.
Reference Collection changes in process
The Archives and Special Collections staff is researching and organizing facts about Elon’s history to get ready for the University’s 125th Anniversary celebration. Stay tuned for exhibits, Facebook posts, tweets, and more.
Looking for something to read? Check out the Summer Reading display now through July 6. During the second half of the summer, we’ll highlight our audiobook collection.
