Billie Jane Baguley Library and Archives Collection Spotlight for June 2017

June 12, 2017

The impact of climate change has been a consistent topic in the news for some time now. Climate change discussions often shift between global issues and the effects on individual communities. Both aspects of the subject are addressed through these four selections from the library collection that explore the consequences for indigenous communities around the world. All four examples are currently on display in the public reading area of the library. Please feel free to visit the library to review these or any other items of interest in the library and archives collections.
