Springtime at Homerton Library

Spring has certainly arrived with daffodils appearing next to the Library and the ducks wandering past on their way to the pond. There has definitely been a daffodil theme to our recent Springtime Library display!

Despite the warm weather outdoors, the Vacation period has been busy in terms of Library use. Postgraduate students who typically work at a distance from Homerton are taking the opportunity to use the study spaces 24/7 to get work done before term time starts. Other students are finding their favourite seat and beginning to ‘nest’ so that books, stationary and piles of notes create their ideal study spaces. As during term time, 3 day desk slips are being used so make sure to fill them in so Library staff don’t re-shelve your books. After Easter, we will switch to 24hr desk slips so we can give all students the opportunity to use the desk spaces and book stock for exams.

Thank you again to everyone who completed the Library survey! It has provided us with great feedback with which to improve the Library facilities and services to benefit all staff and students at Homerton. We will be using a whiteboard in the Library to provide some feedback from the survey but more detailed response from staff will appear on the blog- watch this space!

Here are just a few of the new books that Alys and Robin have been busy cataloguing and labelling to get them ready for the next term:

Fenwick, Helen. Text, cases and materials on public law and human rights.  342 FEN

Dunn Cavelty, Myriam. Securing the homeland: critical infrastructure, risk and (in)security. 363.325 SEC

Squire, Michael. The art of the body: antiquity and its legacy. 709.38 SQU

Innes, Christopher. Modern British Drama, 1890-1990. D822.9 INN

Lots of books are bought from your requests so please continue to fill in the ‘Suggest a Book‘ form on the blog and we will get back to you!
