Endnote available on all Great Ormond Street computers in the Library
We are pleased to announce that Endnote X6 is now available on all the Great Ormond Street Computers in the library.
We regularly review our library service provision to
staff, students and external visitors. One aspect of the service which was
reviewed via a benchmarking exercise during the latter part of last year was
the loan allowance for all library users. UCL Library Committee agreed
in December 2015 that the loan limit for staff at UCL will be set at 40 items
from 1 September 2016. This change maintains a generous limit for staff,
whilst balancing this against the need to manage the Library’s print stock and
ensure that it is available for users at the point of need.
