The Hiddingh Hall library collection continues to expand with several new interesting book acquisitions.  Books are bought by both UCT and the Centre for Curating the Archive – which has been steadily growing the collection on curatorship and archival practice since the launch of the Honours in Curatorship programme in 2013. See below some of the new books in the library, and this webpage to keep informed as new books are bought monthly.
