World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development: 21 May

This day has been established by the United Nations to highlight the potential of the world’s cultures to promote peace and sustainable development.

Libraries are a key part of the global network of institutions that seek to protect cultural heritage and share cultural knowledge. At UniSA Library, we celebrate our role in this endeavour. We invite people of all cultures to make use of our spaces and resources to learn about cultures familiar and unfamiliar, and we welcome you to a haven where you can freely express your own cultural identity. If you are not familiar with the Library services and spaces we provide, please see our Diversity and Inclusion page.

You can use the interactive booklet Communication Across Cultures, from the University of Southern Queensland, to learn about culture in university student life and how to prepare to work successfully with your peers from different cultural backgrounds.

Teaching staff can find more information on how to incorporate Aboriginal knowledge into your courses by consulting our Aboriginal Content in Undergraduate Programs guide.

We encourage you to provide feedback on your experience with the UniSA Library by contacting Ask the Library, or if you are an UniSA international student, by completing our survey.
