Donations wanted for Great Hive Book Rescue

It’s back!

It’s that time of the year again when we need to start collecting any unwanted books from you in order to find them a new home. We are collecting books at The Hive, firstpoint building and Charles Hastings. All books will then be sold at our October event and you can come along and find some hidden gems yourself! All profits will go to charity, and we desperately want to beat last year’s total of nearly £700.

So please, make some room on your book shelf and donate any spare books at our drop off points. Help us raise money for charity and make your old books feel wanted again.

Aspire rollover complete

All resource lists have now been rolled over, and the 2017/18 editions are available for you to start editing.

2017/18 lists should be sent for review and published by 1st August for Semester 1 so that new items can be ordered in time.

Please help us to ensure excellent library resources for your students by making a note of this important date.

Digitisation requests should also be made directly from your list – go to the Edit List view, click on Request Digitisation next to the item you want digitised and complete the pop up request form. Place your digitisation requests by 1st August for start of Semester 1.

If the module lead for 2017/18 is not known at the end of this academic year, then the outgoing module tutor should take responsibility for publishing the new Resource List.  The incoming tutor should not change the Recommended for Purchase text, or remove any Essential Reading. They can add Essential and Further reading and otherwise shape the list structure to suit their teaching.
