Library News for November 2022

    Giving Tuesday UNC Wilmington November 29, 2022

    We’re growing!

    After more than four years of planning, Randall Library has started construction on its new 80,000-SF expansion!  The new building, just west of the existing Randall, will open Fall 2024.

    While we pride ourselves on our varied and technology-rich spaces for students, faculty and staff, Randall Library is more than the building and the collections it houses. We are developing new library services that will move teaching, research, and scholarship forward so that we can truly be the intellectual heart of the campus.

    As part of Like No Other: The Campaign for UNCW, your annual gift will contribute to these new services, spaces, and resources, allowing the library to respond quickly to the changing needs of our students and faculty. We hope that you will consider a gift for #Giving Tuesday or any other day - it will truly make a Randall a library like no other!

    Thank you for your support.

    Lucy Holman
    Associate Provost and Dean of the Library

    Randall Library is proud to host the Fall 2022 UNCW English Department's Wentworth Fellows Travel Fellowships Poster Session on Nov 9th from 3 to 5 PM in the Sherman Hayes Gallery, first floor. 

    Student Travel Fellowship Overview: The Wentworth Travel Fellowship, a gift of Mr. Charles F. Green III, was established in 2001 to enable a select number of students to travel to sites, in America or abroad, associated with literary authors and texts. Each year, students work with faculty sponsors to submit applications detailing journeys inspired by and connected with a specific text, author, or movement in an effort to explore the relationship of artistic production to geographic space.
