You are advised to submit booklists by March 31st each year to the Medical Sciences Library.
Please submit booklists even though changes may not have been made to the list of titles from the preceding year. Early submission enables sufficient time to process the lists and to acquire the most recent editions of titles, well in advance of the start of the new academic year.
Please use the Booklist template (below) and email / mail the completed form to the Library.
