Enter the draw by 18 June for withdrawn library books

The Director of Learning Resource has agreed for the Library to offer staff (fixed term or continuing) and doctoral students an opportunity to own a copy of these titles.

The titles have become available because the Library holds duplicates, or because they are no longer required for Research and Teaching at UC.

For a chance to own one or more of theses titles, please add your name and contact details to the PDF, tick the titles you would like to own, and then scan and email the information to: collections@libr.canterbury.ac.nz.

Alternatively, you can send a paper copy through internal mail addressed to:|
Alison Whitla
Library Access and Collections (LAC)
Puaka James Hight, rm 519

All requests must be received by Monday 18 June.

From Friday 8 June and from Monday – Friday  thereafter (9am-5pm), the titles will be  available for viewing in the Library Access and Collections workroom (rm 519) in Puaka James Hight.

A draw will be completed by Wednesday 20 June, with all successful applicants then contacted by phone or mail.

Please note that most titles will have library markings, cancel stamps and are well worn.
