What we read is shaped by who we are, our background and experience as well as the educational institutions that have shaped our thinking about the world. What have you missed out on?

Each month, we are asking students and staff to nominate a book based around a monthly theme which they believe is important in providing visibility and a voice to underrepresented groups. These nominations will help The Library shape its collection and provide access to these works for staff and students at The University of Sheffield.
