UCL Library Services is celebrating 2012 with exhibitions in the Main Library that focus on key anniversaries with a London connection: Charles Dickens at 200, The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the main display drawing inspiration from the Olympics, past and present. Exhibits in the main exhibition include items from Ancient Greece when unity and physical prowess underlined the first Olympic Games, and papers from the Olympic Congress held in Paris in 1914 at which the symbol of five interlocking rings was adopted for the Olympic flag. The modern day athletic achievements of UCL’s students are also represented with team photographs and trophies from the nineteenth century onwards.
