“World of the 21st Century” Unveiled at Young Library
“World of the 21st Century,” a display featuring online resources about trending topics in a time of change, beckons in the lobby of the William T. Young Library from Jan. 29 through May 4. It showcases e-books, streaming videos, and open access monographs that adopt different perspectives to shed light on four important topics: climate change; future of work; globalization and the politics of food; and impact of the Internet on humanity. It also introduces viewers to UK Libraries’ tools that index similar online resources, namely, InfoKat Discovery for finding e-books and open access monographs, as well as kanopy and Films on Demand for accessing short films and documentaries. A companion guide to the display is available online.
“World of the 21st Century” was created in celebration of the “Year of Civics and Citizenship in the 21st Century: Keys to Our Common Future,” the current theme of the College of Arts and Sciences Passport to the World program. A number of events are in the pipeline to continue the celebration in the Spring Semester. See the event calendar to find out more.
