UTAS Library is supporting the ABC Giving Tree program again this year. The ABC Giving Tree program began life in 1988 as a small pine tree in Hobart’s ABC foyer where presenter Ric Paterson urged listeners to leave a few toys for children in need at Christmas. Nearly 25 years on and the ABC Giving Tree has snowballed into Tasmania’s largest Christmas charity. Donations are divided amongst Tasmanian charities to be handed out across the state to those who need them at Christmas.
The Launceston Campus and Morris Miller libraries are drop off points for UTAS donations – donations will be collected on 14 December. Please do not giftwrap donated items. Further information, including how to make a cash donation, at http://www.abc.net.au/local/stories/2010/10/25/3047596.htm

Thank you to all who participated in our Borrowing Rules Survey, we had in excess of 2000 responses and these responses have been most helpful to our Borrowing Rules Review.
As a result of the review there will be some changes to Borrowing Rules, these changes will be introduced late in 2012.
Over the break, contractors have been making changes to the Launceston Campus Library. These are to prepare us for the introduction of 24/7 opening from early in Semester 2, 2012. Swipe card access, security phone and cameras and a water chiller are all currently being installed. Stay tuned for more information.
EBSCO have advised that they are currently experiencing some issues with EBSCOhost & EBSCOadmin which are preventing access.
These are expected to be resolved within the next hour, and we will let you know when they have been fixed.
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
