Liberate My Library

The Liberate My Library initiative is a way to request items that will diversify our collections..

We have wonderful collections across Durham's libraries and museums but we want to make our collections even more diverse. To do this we are working with Durham Students Union to encourage students and staff to recommend items that will increase the diversity of the library’s collections.

The groups we are focusing on are:

  • LGBT+
  • BAME
  • Disability
  • Gender & Identity

Requests for more general books on Equality, Diversity and Inclusion are also encouraged.

We currently have a limit of 10 requests per person for this academic year.

If for any reason we are unable complete your request we will then contact you to let you know.

If you have any enquiries about this service or would like to give feedback please contact

To request a book click on the link below and on the form select the option Liberate My Library.
