What do the different labels on the books mean? October 5, 2012

If you’ve been down to The Hive (or even seen us mentioning blue & orange labels) you might wonder what they’re about.

When UW combined its print collection with Worcester County Council’s to make The Hive collection we had to make sure that your key texts and essential reading were accessible to you when you need them, because of this The Hive collection consists of three different collections:

1. Blue label (University High Demand)

As these are high demand items for UW members, you may borrow 12 of these at a time, whilst the public can only borrow 1. At peak times we may reserve these for students. These are 2 week loan items.
2. Orange label (University Short Loan)

This collection is key texts and essential reading (this mostly means texts marked as ‘essential reading’ from your Reading Lists). You can borrow three of these at a time, but the public are only allowed to use them for reference in the library building. You can borrow these for a day.

3. No label (County Council & other University items)

Items in this collection aren’t considered essential reading for UW students, so borrowing for these is the same for everyone, you can borrow 12 for 3 weeks.

Hopefully you’ve got an idea of how the book stock works now. If you have any questions, ask away!

Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I
could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m
having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!

Hi Zachary. Sorry about the delayed response, must have missed the notification. If it’s still of use you’re very welcome to use it.

Sitios de comparación en Europa están ahora ejerciendo un poder significativo, particularmente en los seguros de automóviles.

Esto preocupa en Inglaterra a aseguradores de automóviles, que temen
que el sector deje de ser rentables porque el precio es el factor primordial.

En Australia, sitios de comparadores están creciendo en número, pero su papel ha dividido a la industria.

Algunas aseguradoras ven como un camino para la venta de servicios y tentar a
la gente a adquirir un seguro. Otros se oponen con vehemencia a él por motivos que se reducen
la utilidad.
