University display at Leamington

Thinking of heading off to University? Have a look at our display in Leamington library. There’s lots of useful advice about choosing what and where to study, how to survive your 1st term away from home, budgeting and meal ideas, or maybe a Gap year first? And if you are that little bit older, read some inspirational stories showing why it’s never too late!Univ pic april 15

Free historical images on Flickr

.

Thanks to Kalev Leetaru, an American academic, millions of searchable historical images are now available to download on Flickr.

He plans to create a database of 12 million historical copyright-free images; so far he has uploaded 2.6 million, sourced from more than 600 million library book pages.

Most of the images that are in the books are not in any of the art galleries of the world – the original copies have long ago been lost. The pictures range from 1500 to 1922, when copyright restrictions kicked in.

See a selection of the images available in a great display promoting the collection in the RLS College Library.
