MORE BOOKS IN THE LIBRARY


 

THE IDEA

Students wanted more physical and online books available in the library.

 

ACTION

  • The Education Officer will raise these comments with Library Services during their monthly meetings, however, this is an issue that Course Representatives can solve by liaising with the library or directly with their Course Leader.

 

UPDATE

NOVEMBER 5TH

  • The Education Officer is discussing feedback about the library with the Collections Manager.

 

NOVEMBER 29TH

  • The Education Officer has talked to the Library Collections Manager about the provision of books, who has confirmed the below:
  • Provision of books are dealt with at a subject level by your faculty librarian, who liaises with academics in the subject area to establish the required course materials.
  • The book budget allocated within Library Services enables your faculty librarian to regularly review the borrowing demand for texts and to make recommendations for purchasing e- books, depending on costs, the demand for the resource and the availability of a suitable online version.
  • Students can contact their faculty librarian to discuss resources for their course. A print copy of a text can also be requested. Students can use ‘suggest for purchase’ form on the library webpages to request and consider purchasing additional material not currently held in our collections.

HOW IT WORKS

1. Students submit ideas during Change Week.

2. Teams of students gather to hack solutions to the biggest problems.

3. Teams pitch their ideas to a panel of University big wigs.

4. SU Officers and teams work with staff to make the ideas a reality.
