Current Earth Sciences Library News No. 487 – Almost end of term edition

Books to be returned or renewed next week

5.00 p.m. on Wednesday; 14/03/2012, is when books need be returned or renewed. The process is as follows:

  • On Tuesday, 13/03/2012, if you have any items out you will receive an automated email informing you that they must be returned or renewed by 5.00 p.m. the following day.
  • If you no longer need the item/s you borrowed please return them in good time.
  • If, however, you wish to renew just simply reply to the email and ask us to renew the item/s for you.
  • Don’t try to renew any item/s on-line. This will only lead to failure, fines and frustration.
  • Fines will be applied.

Youtube sensation – let’s export it to viral

Remember that exciting day when the department was visited by a camera crew? Here are the first results to be seen.

Available on youtube and the page. There’s more than just Ekbal to this film, see hw many back views of members of the department you can spot (the makings of a drinking game perhaps?).
