First class Uni. Second Class Library. Hmm…

Work with the University to think of ways of improving the Library services. The Learning Grid is awesome but should not be an alternative. It should be a supplement.

Also, an idea…..When I was studying in Hong Kong, the core reading for each week was photocopied and kept behind a desk by the librarian. This was not allowed to leave the library. However, anyone from the course could borrow it and photocopy it or read it whilst in the library.

Also, investigate the possibility of there being a reading pack made available by module directors. This is done by some departments and whilst it would be more expensive, the costs would be kept to a minimum and would be invaluable.

  1. Reading packs are pretty helpful from my experience – more could definately be made of them.

  2. the reading packs idea is pretty utopiran but a good idea neverthless. It would help students and also increase the likelihood of a student reading. Whilst it would cost the students money it may be that students are actuallly saving money cos they dont have to buy books

    thanks sarah!
