Book Giveaway – 7 August!

The library is organising book giveaways during 2015, giving you the opportunity to obtain withdrawn books for your personal collection.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.

Flu vaccines still available at UC Health Centre

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.
