On 21st March 2018 Junior College students together with BA Hons students from the Department of Maltese visited the Melitensia Department as well as the Archives & Rare Books Department of the UM Library as part of the events organised to celebrate "Il-Festival tal-Ktieb Fuq il-Kampus". The students were led by Department Head Dr Bernard Micallef together with Dr Olvin Vella and Mr David Agius Muscat.

A small display of material was prepared for them in the Archives Department and included among'st others a copy of Mikiel Anton Vassalli's Lexicon (1796) as well as manuscripts from the Dun Karm Collection, the Rużar Briffa Collection and the Ġużè Aquilina Collection.

The UM Library has participated in the Festival since its inception and wishes to thank all those involved for the opportunity this affords us to create greater awareness among the student population of the richness of the Special Collections and of the wealth of material it houses relating to the Maltese language.

Congratulations to the organisers for another very successful "Festival tal-Ktieb Fuq il-Kampus".
