Using your library card

Organization

Current serials are housed at Level 2 (next to the loan and point-of-sales (POS) counters) and bound serials at Level 1 (near the standing Online-Public-Access-Catalogue (OPAC)). Current serials are the latest issues of a particular journal. Completed issues making up a volume or two will usually be sent for binding. The completed bound volume will be kept in the bound serial area, which is shelved in alphabetical order. Signs with the serial listing are displayed in the bound serial area to assist you in locating the title of the journal.

We currently subscribe to a total of over 30 serial titles in print format. 27 serial titles, which have either ceased publication or we have stopped subscribing to them, are located at the bound serial area. On top of this print collection, we have an additional 219 online full-text titles.

These are available in the EBSCO Host. These resources have been made available to us by the generous donation of a BGST alumnus.
