Thanks to recommendations from members of staff and requests via RAB from students the Library is continually adding new books to its collections both online and in print. Here are just a small number of the books that have been added to the Library’s collections in October 2014 for Social and Political Science.
During the Get the Best from the Library Week you can:
Discover the full range of information resources available to you
Find out about new resources purchased recently
Get one-to-one support from a library specialist in your subject area
All next week the Library Academic Support team are taking over the Pop-up Library desk in the afternoons (1st floor, Main Library, Mon-Fri 2-4pm) so why not pop-up for a chat and find out how you can Get the Best from the Library?
Introduction to the psychology of ageing for non-specialists by Ian Stuart-Hamilton (shelfmark: BF724.8 Stu.)
Re-imagining child protection : towards humane social work with families by Brid Featherstone, Sue White and Kate Morris (shelfmark: HV751.A6 Fea.)
Check the Library Catalogue for full details of the books including number of copies, location and availability. Access to e-books is only available to students and staff of University of Edinburgh.
You may find some of these books in the New Books display on the 1st floor of the Main Library, where a selection of new books from all subjects across the University are held. Books on these display shelves can be borrowed as normal.
Caroline Stirling – Academic Support Librarian for Social and Political Science.
The successful negotiation of consortial purchasing agreements across Scottish Higher Education institutions has now given us access to all the collections in Oxford Scholarship Online. We already had access to the Political Science collection, but we now also have access to titles in Sociology and Social Work.
These collections allow unlimited user access and (within copyright) printing and saving of articles, making them good choices for inclusion on student reading lists.
