22 June: Review of Fisher Reference collection
The Fisher Library Redevelopment Project is about to begin and the first collection for review is the Reference collection on level 3 of the Library. While the collection contains some important tools for research and teaching it had also become very dated.
Library staff have worked though the collection to identify the appropriate location of the material.
A large number of works will be relocated into the Research collection. Important multivolume and serial works relocated into the Research collection will be marked as not for loan so you will always have access to them. Due to time constraints we have begun relocating this material from Reference into the Research collection.
The remaining material has been classified into four main categories for review:
- Into Storage
- Into Government documents collection
- Remain as part of the Reference collection
- Material no longer required (because the works are duplicates, the information is either available electronically, or has become superseded or is out of scope for learning / research)
The collection has been arranged into these categories available for you to consult from today until Friday 8 July. A form is available from the Information desk if you wish to change the Library proposed placement of the item into a different category.
The new reference collection will be a very small part of the new high demand collection which will comprise of Reserve and the recently used material from Short Loan.
For more information and updates about the project please go to the Fisher Library Redevelopment Project
We look forward to your assistance in this review process
