    Randall Library Sundial Gallery

    On the second floor of Randall Library, between Special Collections and the Auditorium, an existing exhibit space has been renamed. The Sundial Gallery, named for the newly installed sundial (made possible by the Reda family) in front of DeLoach Hall and visible from Randall's east-facing windows, has been newly painted and will receive museum-quality window treatments and exhibit cases in the coming weeks.

    The Sundial Gallery's inaugural exhibit, tentatively scheduled for Spring 2016, will feature items from the congressional collection of Mike McIntyre, donated to UNCW and Randall Library Special Collections in the fall of 2014. The collection spans McIntyre's career representing North Carolina's 7th district as member of the United States House of Representatives. The collection contains photographs, artifacts, congressional awards and recognitions and will allow students, faculty, staff and other researchers to better understand the legislative process and southeastern North Carolina's history. For more information about the McIntyre collection, please click here

    We look forward to seeing you in the Sundial Gallery, and please remember that the second floor of Randall Library is dedicated quiet space for our users.

    Randall Library Charleston Syllabus

    A display in our Featured New Books area, on the first floor, represents a small amount of materials from Randall Library’s general collection which can be found on the #Charlestonsyllabus, please visit library.uncw.edu or our Research Helpdesk to find more.

    The #Charlestonsyllabus is a list of readings that educators can use to broach conversations in the classroom about the horrendous events that unfolded in Charleston, South Carolina on the evening of June 17, 2015. These readings provide valuable information about the history of racial violence in this country and contextualize the history of race relations in South Carolina and the United States in general. They also offer insights on race, racial identities, global white supremacy and black resistance.

    #Charlestonsyllabus was conceived by Chad Williams, Associate Professor of African and Afro-American Studies at Brandeis University. With the help of Kidada Williams, the hashtag started trending on Twitter on the evening of June 19, 2015.


    “#Charlestonsyllabus is more than a list. It is a community of people committed to critical thinking, truth telling and social transformation.”– Chad Williams
