Workshop: Cited reference searching

Thursday 7th June, 12:00–13:00, Business School 2.23

Cited reference searching is a technique that will help you locate additional articles for your research. Previously published articles relevant to your research appear in the list of references at the end of a journal article. A cited reference search, however, brings you forward in time to identify more recent articles which cite the original article that you located. This hands-on workshop will take you through the process of carrying out a cited reference search on appropriate databases.

Collecting Malcolm Garrett: snapshots from the world of tomorrow

11 September 2017 - 23 March 2018

MMU Special Collections Gallery,
3rd Floor,
All Saints Library

This exhibition of books, clothing, toys and ephemera drawn from the personal collections of renowned graphic designer Malcolm Garrett highlights his compulsive interest in new worlds and futuristic design. From this diverse selection of objects it is clear that the work Garrett produced at Manchester School of Art, which in turn played its part in shaping a 'new wave' of music and fashion at the end of the 1970s, was inspired by the ephemeral, cultural media surrounding him as he grew up. The exhibition shows how the iconography of science fact, fiction and fantasy have had an enduring influence on his work and life.

Oceans Apart: Great Migrations, Grand Tours and Atlantic Liners 1870-1940

16 April - 17 August 2018

MMU Special Collections Gallery,
3rd Floor,
All Saints Library

Oceans apartOceans liners are synonymous with the age of travelling in style but the stories of those who travelled on them varied greatly. Drawing on archives and advertising material, this exhibition explores these stories to reveal the contrasting experiences of poor emigrants journeying to the Americas in steerage and the voyages of the wealthy who travelled in luxury in First Class.

More than 50 million people crossed the Atlantic in great waves of migration during the 19th and early 20th centuries. The exhibition provides insights into some of the motives and life-changing decisions that led people to undertake these sometimes-perilous journeys in search of better lives in the Americas. Among the unique documents included in the exhibition are original letters, ticket-books and ledgers from the archives of Irish emigration agent and general merchant, John Gibbons (1874-1957) of Westport, Co. Mayo.

The exhibition also explores a very different type of voyage to that offered by shipping lines to the migrating steerage-passengers: one of luxury and style, available to wealthy travellers returning to the Old Country, taking cruises or touring Europe and the Middle East. The glamour of First Class travel is represented through a collection of posters and brochures from the Golden Age of steamships that held the promise of exotic locations and opulent surroundings.

The exhibition has been curated by Dr John Gibbons, Senior Lecturer in the Department of History, Politics and Philosophy at Manchester Metropolitan University.

Outsiders and insiders: Savoy through the lens of the Michael Butterworth archive

25 June - 25 July 2018

Spotlight Gallery, ground floor and Reading Room, third floor,
All Saints Library

Reverbstorm 6, an edition of David Britton's Lord Horror, vol. 1 no. 13. Artwork by John Coulthart, edited by Michael Butterworth. Savoy Manchester, 1997 We have recently acquired the archive of the Manchester-based author, poet and editor, Michael Butterworth. Much of Butterworth's output was produced under the rubric of Savoy, the Manchester-based publisher which he co-founded in 1976 and closely identified with. The archive has great value as a potential source of new knowledge about Savoy, but it is also significant as a portal to Manchester's underground culture of literature and visual images. This exhibition provides a taster of this remarkable resource through selected objects in the two key areas: Savoy and the image and Savoy's international network.

Curated by David Brittain, Senior Lecturer in Media at the Manchester School of Art, with video by Clara Casian.
