A digital collection made up of alternative press newspapers, magazines and journals from the latter half of the 20th century, drawn from the special collections of participating libraries. These periodicals were produced by feminists, dissident GIs, campus radicals and the New Left, Native Americans, anti-war activists, Black Power advocates, Hispanics, LGBT activists, the extreme right-wing press and alternative literary magazines.

National Poetry Month

poetry

April is National Poetry Month.  To celebrate, Trecker Library is asking you to bring in a copy of a favorite poem (or two).  It can be a poem you wrote, a classic, famous, obscure, long, short…  It’s all good!    If you participated last year, you can submit a different favorite or even re-submit the same one if it is the BEST POEM EVER!  Bring in a print copy to the Trecker Library service desk or email a link to Janice.mathews@lib.uconn.edu.  Include the author, and, if you choose to, “Contributed by Your Name.”  Poems will be displayed in the exhibit cases in the hallway outside Trecker Library.  Share a favorite poem and stop by the exhibit to see what others love!

See you at the Library!
