Current Earth Sciences Library News, No 501 – Less than a month till the end of the world edition

Quick reminder

Next week is the end of the term borrowing period. Items are to be returned or renewed by 5.00 p.m. on Wednesday 28.12.2012. Thursday will be shelf checking day so the library will not open until, around 3.00 o’clock in the afternoon. An email will be dispatched to let you know. At this point vacation borrowing will commence.

What can I borrow during the vacation?

It’s all very much the same as usual apart from the Short Loan Collection items in the library office (the ones with red/orange stickers on the spine) will be out for the duration of the vacation – these items will be due back on Tuesday 15th january 2013

Careers event photos

A few shots from the careers eventMelange

I’ve uploaded some of the photos taken during the Careers Event. They’re on the library Flickr site here

On that subject, Netfex , one of the companies represented at the Careers Event has announced the Netfex Earth Model Award 2013 – for best MSC/MSCI/MGEOL Project 2012-2013. Find out more from here or download pdf of the flyer

Open Access news

I’ve just discovered that the University has set up an Open Access Working Group. You can find out about it, including read the agenda and latest minutes from this link

Something flighty

I came across this  and couldn’t not share it. Enjoy.
