The UTAS Library has for many years mounted public displays and exhibitions, sometimes in consultation with external parties.
UTAS Library has embarked on a great new initiative that will support the social, cultural, and intellectual life of the University of Tasmania, and the wider community. We encourage all UTAS Academic and Administrative & Service Units, as well as community groups, to make use of display spaces and facilities at all UTAS libraries.
Introducing our showcase for University of Tasmania Digital Collections and Research
Winifred Curtis (1905 – 2005) was a leading scientist and educator who left us an immense legacy. Winifred continues to be recognised for her botanical research, particularly her role in increasing our knowledge and understanding of Tasmanian flora. As a science educator, Winifred strove for fairness and equal opportunity, she influenced a generation of Australians through her publications: Biology for Australian Students, Student’s Flora of Tasmania and The Endemic Flora of Tasmania.
