The Queen Mary submission to part 2 of the June-November 2011 UKRR cycle consisted of science journals to which we no longer subscribe and titles for which we have electronic access via Project Muse or JSTOR. We have now received the results of this submission to the UKRR, and the British Library have told us we can dispose of the holdings submitted for this cycle.
Members of academic staff may take personal ownership of any of the titles listed for disposal. If you wish to do this, please complete the request form, which needs to be signed by the staff member and his or her Head of Department, and return it to your Academic Liaison Librarian before Friday 6 January 2012. Any journals requested will need to be removed from the Library before Friday 13 January 2012. All withdrawn items not taken by members of academic staff will be sold, offered to charity or disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner.
An exciting new project has been launched to digitise and publish online the diaries and autobiography of Constance Maynard, the first Mistress of Westfield College. A pioneer of women’s education, Maynard helped to established Westfield College and for 31 years assisted hundreds of women to attain University of London degrees.Posted on Wednesday 16 November 2011
We've received a number of complaints about the noise from the building work happening between the Library and the cemetery on the Mile End campus, and would like to apologise to all students who have been disturbed by this. The work is to improve the access route to the new Arts Two building located on the Mile End Road behind the cemetery and the Library.
We've contacted our colleagues in the Estates Directorate about this, and have now been told that the worst of the noise should now be over, although work will be continuing until June 2012.Posted on Friday 4 November 2011
We have recently added the Deutsche Biographie site to MetaLib.
This service is a project of the Historical Commission of the Bayerischen Akademie der Wissenschaften. It makes available articles on over 120,000 prominent personalities who were either born in the German speaking world or were otherwise influential in the development of German history or culture. The articles include the complete text of the 1912 edition of the Allgemeinen Deutschen Biographie and the more recent Neuen Deutschen Biographie (in progress since 1953 and complete from Aachen-Schwarz).Posted on Tuesday 1 November 2011
