War Poets Collection Centenary Commemoration Guided Tours

Event Date: 04/08/2014

A guided tour of the War Poets Collection at Edinburgh Napier University.
Full Details
​Edinburgh Napier University’s Craiglockhart campus has a fascinating past. The building opened as a Hydropathic establishment in 1880, where the wealthy could take fashionable water treatments. In the summer of 1917, the poets Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen met at Craiglockhart, when the building was requisitioned by the military authorities for use as a hospital for officers suffering from shell-shock, From the 1920s the building became home to the Convent of the Sacred Heart and the Craiglockhart College of Education, providing both a school and a teacher training facility.

The University houses a small special collection of material relating to the history of Craiglockhart. Catherine Walker will provide a guided visit and talk about the many interesting characters who have had links with Craiglockhart over the years.

The exhibition is open to the public during campus opening hours and all are welcome to visit!

27,000 new ebooks for Library

Following an innovative Scottish universities purchasing deal, stu more...

Following an innovative Scottish universities purchasing deal, students and staff now have access to 27,000 new ebooks.
The aim of the deal was to maximise shared purchasing power and to allow users to download and print the ebooks.

The titles come from five major academic publishers:
• Oxford University Press incl. partner presses (14,715 titles)
• Palgrave (5,200)
• Sage (2,440 titles)
• Elsevier (2,850 titles)
• Wiley (2,627)
The APUC (Advanced Procurement for Universities and Colleges) agreement allows access to the books for up to four years. The most heavily used books will be purchased automatically. Like e-purchasing, this means your usage helps choose which books are owned by the Library.

What is different about these ebooks?
You will be able to download and print the books purchased under the new agreement, and multiple users will be allowed.
To date, many of the ebooks purchased by Edinburgh Napier have had publisher restrictions on amount of use, downloading and printing (e.g. a ten page maximum).

Find ebooks using LibrarySearch, more will appear in search results in the next few weeks. Questions? Email library@napier.ac.uk.
