Digital resources for you at Templeman Library

To celebrate the ninth LGBTQ+ History Month this February, the Templeman Library has been working with colleagues from the Kent Union and Student Support & Wellbeing to create a book club for students who want to feed their literary curiosity and discover new books and resources outside of their academic studies. There is an online reading list of titles for students to engage with.

The theme this year is mind, body, spirit. Check out the list of titles available in the Templeman and Drill Hall Libraries

This year we have updated the list to include a variety of digital resources including podcasts, online events and films and documentaries for you to engage with, a few of our favourites below:
