The lab has a library. There are various books of various origins and ownership that have built up in the space. This page will start to catalog some of them, and document library related policies.
This page also honours the memory of the former Edinburgh University library cat, pictured above, who has been missing since 13 March 2016.
Books returned late may optionally be accompanied by a mate for the person who wanted it. Alternatively you may feed a cat treats in penance.
You may add books from your personal library to the catalogue if you want to offer them for loan.
The lab can buy books of interest to members. If you want it to do so, send a message to the mailing list for comment first and then if there are no objections / enough support go ahead and buy it. Enough support means at least one person wants the book in addition to the proposer. More support may be needed for expensive books. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for reimbursement. If discussion result is unclear directors can be asked for a decision.
Consider supporting local book shops, and avoiding amazon for ethical reasons, including their abuse of workers.
Points to consider when proposing books:
|Book||Owner||Borrowable?||Default location||Borrowed by||Borrowed date|
