LIBRARY LIST &
Over the last few years, the
Society has enjoyed considerable growth in our library collection and resources,
and it continues to grow !! This expansion meant that a printed
Library list would be expensive to produce, and be difficult to keep up to date
for members. We have therefore trialled an on-line catalogue. Following feedback
from members, it was felt that an easier way to search was required, rather than
the multi-tab spreadsheet format offered.
Members will find
LIBRARY SEARCH tool in the Library section of this website
which will open in a new window.
Alongside this, members will still be able to download a copy of the library list spreadsheet
for their own use at home.
As always we welcome feedback from
members, drop the librarian (Jim Hay) a line at
Should any members require a printed list, or have any particular requirements please feel free to contact
the Society librarian by email or by post.
MIDLANDS AREA GROUP
The Society would like to establish a Midlands
area group to replace the recently defunct Staffordshire area group, and
David Jones has offered to co-ordinate
efforts. Anybody interested in helping and/or attend meetings is invited
to contact David.
It would be useful to
know which centres people might be able to attend (Stoke, Stafford,
Uttoxeter, Burton, Derby and Lichfield are suggestions) and how much per
meeting you would think it worth contributing to meet costs. It is possible
that joint meetings with another Society could be a way forward – any
suggestions would be appreciated. David can be contacted
on email at: firstname.lastname@example.org or at 22 Maple Close, Doveridge,
Ashbourne DE6 5LU
