Preferred Names

Do you have a preferred name that differs from your legal name?

We are pleased to offer students, faculty and staff the opportunity to provide the library with a preferred name. This will affect automated notifications (e.g., Borrowing Activity Letters, Overdue Notices, etc.). When available, a preferred name will appear on library notifications in place of a legal name.

African American Memory and Experience

African American Memory and Experience, the current book exhibit in the library lobby, features compelling expressions of the Black Experience through memoirs, biographies and arts of modern African Americans.  Stories and images of individuals and society graphically portray suffering, grief and success in the struggle against racism.  We encourage everyone to borrow, read and share these words at the UMass Dartmouth Annual African American Read-In on February 13.
