Displays in the Chemistry Library

At the Chemistry Library we like to create displays which showcase our collection while celebrating special occasions or foregrounding important issues. On this page, you can find photos of some of our previous displays and links to the books featured in them. If you have an idea for a display you would like to see in the library, let us know!
