The library is organising book giveaways during 2015, giving you the opportunity to obtain withdrawn books for your personal collection. The next giveaway is Friday 7 August, 12.15pm-3pm, Level 3, north side, Central Library, Puaka-James Hight building.
The new owner is the first person who wants the book. Please bring your own bags to take the books away.
A book is in the giveaway because:
- It no longer meets the demands of the course or research it was purchased for; or
- Fewer copies of the title are now required; or
- It is damaged and has been replaced; or
- It was donated but does not meet the “in scope” criteria for Learning, Teaching and Research at UC.
The Shilling Club is offering $10 lunches on Mondays and Tuesdays from 11.30am-2pm.
You can view next week’s menu on The Shilling Club Facebook page and The Shilling Club website.
Bookings are essential so please phone Evan on 021 079 2947.
Influenza-like illnesses are currently starting to follow an upward trend in Canterbury and, last year, the numbers did not peak until mid-July and continued until the end of August.
The UC Health Centre strongly encourages all UC staff to get a flu vaccine, which takes 7-10 days to fully cover you against the three influenza viral strains currently in circulation. The flu vaccine is free for all staff – just phone 364-2402 (ext. 6402) to book an appointment.
The Library’s programme of research support workshops for postgraduate students and academic staff continues this term.
Workshops include EndNote, Maximizing your Research Impact, Using RSS and Social Bookmarking Tools to Keep Current, and Managing Your Research Data.
