The Inforum mounts thematic book displays and exhibitions from time to time. Many of the displays are accompanied by annotated bibliographies, available as PDFs below.
Our team of Inforum student assistants are instrumental in the creation of displays and bibliographies. If you have ideas for future themes, we'd love to hear about them. Email email@example.com with your suggestions.
