Library Update for the School of Informatics

Tuesday, August 22, 2006


We are now ready to start processing book orders again. All previous orders placed after May 23rd, via the online order form, have been carried forward for ordering in this financial year.

As a reminder:


The procedure for recommending print books is listed here.

Please check the Library Catalogue before submitting your request. You may be interested in the EUL Catalogue 'bookmarklet', which will allow you to easily check the catalogue from sites such as Amazon.

If we already have the item in stock, but you feel the Library should have more copies, please indicate this is the 'comments' section. As a general rule, for print orders, we recommend 1 copy per 20 students and you can choose to place the item on 1 week, standard loan or reserve (3 hour loan). In addition, we also offer e-reserve.


Due to staff changes at the Library, all book orders are now being placed at the Main Library. Due to the large volume of orders processed, it will no longer be possible to notify individual requesters when the item arrives in the Library. Unless you hear from me otherwise, please assume that the order has been placed. Once placed, the progress of the order can be checked via the Library Catalogue.


We subscribe to several online book collections, and there may be items in the collection you wish to include in your reading lists. In addition, recommendations for new titles can be placed for both Safari and NetLibrary. If you wish to order an online/ebook, a different procedure should be followed, and this is listed here.

Orders do not need to be placed for any volumes in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (or the LNAI sub-series). Our online collection is updated as soon as Springer make the volume available, and can be accessed here .


*** All book orders are subject to there being sufficient funds ***

All of the above information is available via the Guide to Resources in Informatics.
