Morocco travels

We’re delighted that the CSAD Level 5 Field project students could explore our Artists’ Books Collection before their journey to Marrakesh in January. As their Lecturer, Chris Glynn said “students inspired, seeds sown”. Job done! We’re even more delighted that their resulting work is now on display on the ground floor of Llandaff Library. On show until 24th April.



Special thanks to Chris Glynn & students for showing the sights of Morocco this lunchtime & their marvellous artistic creations

International Women’s Day

On International Women’s Day I decided to ‘fly a kite’ in the Library’s catalogue MetSearch . . . .

Screen Shot 2018-03-08 at 10.02.31

Using the word ‘women’ in the Journal A-Z title search resulted in 138 hits. Titles such as Women in Mind: A Feminist Journal dedicated to all Voices, Contemporary Women’s Writing, Women’s Art Journal and Make (Published by the Women’s Art Library) are just a taster of the titles. Do take a look . . . . and have a play around with different key word searches. In addition to the print journals, which you can browse in the library, we subscribe to thousands of electronic journals which you can read online anywhere. Just make sure you are logged in as a Cardiff Met user (and don’t forget the sign-in tab at the top righthand corner of the MetSearch page) to access these.International Women’s Day

a monthly photographic zine by Chiara Ambrosio


“As Far As The Eye Can Travel is a paper Wunderkammer that gathers together geographies of the mind, topographies of the soul and physical excavations: curious chance encounters, moments of discovery, unexpected revelations that will surprise, enchant and spark uncharted flights of the imagination as far as the eye can- and will- travel.

It is a magnifying glass through which to look at the real world anew and reveal all the magic and wonder that lies within it …”
