Interns on board to create your Resource List!

Univeristy of Ediburgh Logo

We are very happy to announce the appointment of Katrin and Gemma who will be interning with us over the next six weeks to create resource lists for the College of Humanities and Social Science.

We  would also like to thank Louise and Christabel who have been interning for the School of History, Classics & Archaeology(HCA) for the past eight weeks. They put in a terrific effort and along with their other tasks created a whopping seventeen resource lists for HCA. Well done!

If you have a reading list that you would like to see transformed into an interactive online reading list at we can do this for you!

This service also includes providing a summary of the items on your list, books, journals and articles, with information on how many are held and at what locations. This means you can see in advance where additional materials might need to be ordered or moved into reserved/short loan sections of the library.

If you would like to send us your reading list there are a few important pieces of information that will help us provide you with the best possible service:
