Spotlight on Meanwhile, Back in the Library: Health

The Library is very excited to announce that its next exhibition will be ‘Meanwhile, Back in the Library’ which will look at how comics, graphic novels, cartoons, newspaper strips, caricatures and picture books can be used within academia and how they connect with  subject areas such as science, game design, film, journalism, autobiography and art. 

Why not use a comic and academic text together to help get into a subject! Here are a selection of health related comics to get you started. Unsure about this approach...take a look at these articles!

Just to add, you may feel like some recreational reading...there is also a link to the first book in the The Sandman series. Whilst it may not help with your assignments, its a pretty amazing read! Even when studying, you need to take a break and you can take a look at the Meanwhile, Back in the Library Reading List Online here.

Spotlight on: World Book Day 1st March 2018

It is World Book day on the 1st March!  Why not celebrate by trying a book, comic or graphic novel by a new author or by dipping back into a favourite book?  The Library has a comprehensive collection of fiction and non-fiction that you could dip into when you are ready for a break.

Whether it's taking a break from the pc or finding some me time to relax, go for it as it's World Book Day! This year, the Learning & Teaching Support Librarians' and the Library Research Support Team Librarians' favorite reads are:

  • X-Men: Age of Apocalypse by Scott Lobdell, Mark Waid and Fabian Nicieza. If you like your X-Men in alternative realities... its a dream of a book!
  • The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction 2017

  • Provenance by Ann Leckie.  Ann Leckie won the following awards for her debut novel - Ancillary Justice winner of the Hugo, Nebula, Arthur C. Clarke and British Science Fiction Association Awards

  • The Unicorn by Iris Murdoch

  • The Noise of Time by Julian Barnes

  • Excalibur by Jack Whyte

  • Freedom, Rhythm & Sound: Revolutionary jazz original cover art 1965-83. Compiled by Gilles Peterson and Stuart baker

  • Nimona by Noelle Stevenson. This comic starts off as what seems to be a sunny fantasy romp about a girl who inveigles herself a position as a supervillain's sidekick, and finishes off somewhere very different indeed.

If we have the book in the Library collection, we have added a link to Library Search so that you can take a look at these favorite books!


Don't forget, you can also explore the collections of the Sheffield Public Library and take a look at all the wonderful resources they have to offer.

Happy reading!
