Biomedical & Life Sciences Collection new releases

This month's new releases to the Biomedical & Life Sciences Collection include a new mini-series on Future Directions in Therapeutic Intervention, Diagnostics and Prophylactics. As the development of new treatments and diagnostic tools requires a lot of effort and a lot of money, it is important to consider numerous factors before choosing to pursue a specific research path. This new series, containing five lectures delivered by experts from the pharmaceutical industry, presents a range of future directions for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases, their promises and pitfalls.

What to do with your library books over the Christmas break

The campuses will be closed from noon 24th December until Monday 4th January. Please check the link below to find out when your campus library is opening after the Christmas break.

If you are going away over the Christmas break then please consider whether you need your library books just in case someone else needs them. All the campus libraries are open until noon 24th December so there is plenty of time to return them before you go away.

Remember to check your library account and renew your library books if you want to return them after the 18th January 2016.

Please check your University of Greenwich email account in case any of your books get requested before the 18th January.
