World Poetry Day

World Poetry Day is on 21 March, and was declared by UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) in 1999. The purpose of the day is to promote the reading, writing, publishing and teaching of poetry throughout the world and, as the UNESCO session declaring the day says, to "give fresh recognition and impetus to national, regional and international poetry movements".
The Library provides many fine resources relating to poetry including the ProQuest database Literature Online and numerous e-journals including, via EBSCO, Poetry.

Don't forget to check SOLAR for all your Library needs.
