We have thousands of old books that we have withdrawn from the Library collection. Each week we will put out more books in the following places: The Main Library foyer area, and just outside and inside the Student Computer Centre in the Hub. Please feel free to browse the shelves and take as many of these books as you wish. THERE IS NO LIMIT!
About our book withdrawals process
Over the summer we have been busy 'weeding' our book collection to ensure only the most relevant resources remain on Library shelves. We have run reports to check the usage and age of books, liaison librarians have reviewed old or infrequently used books and removed any past their best from the Library shelves. We have then withdrawn the record for that item from the catalogue and set the books aside for removal from the Library. Note that:
1) Many of these titles are now available electronically or in later editions, and
2) The weeding has
enabled us to create more student study spaces in the Main Library.
Before we discard books we are placing them on shelves in three areas: the Main Library foyer area (pictured above) and just outside and inside the Student Computer Centre in the hub. Books will be added and removed weekly. Please feel free to pop along and browse the shelves and take as many of these books as you wish. There is no limit! We suggest you bring a book bag with you or feel free to take one of the plastic bags provided.
If you have any questions about our withdrawals process please contact the library or leave a message on our facebook page.
