How to borrow



The Malvern U3A Geology Group library is now catalogued in an Excel Workbook a web version of which is kept up-to-date on our group website ( click here ). If you would like to have a paper copy of the catalogue, contact the librarian (see below). Alternatively you can request a soft copy of the full Excel Workbook, again from the Librarian, which would normally be sent by email.

The books, maps, guides and booklets are available on loan to members of the group.  A selection of the materials will be displayed at our indoor meetings.  You can borrow them there, and return them at the next meeting in about one month's time.  If you wish to look at or borrow a particular item from the catalogue, please get in touch with our librarian.  She can bring the item to the next meeting or arrange for you to collect it from her house between meetings.

There are three sections to the catalogue:

You can view each full section by clicking on the relevant 'sheet tab' at the bottom of the page.

Guidelines for borrowing 

Please take good care of materials, especially if you take them into the field. This particularly applies to geological maps. We envisage maps being used at home, or possibly in your car. Please make photocopies of relevant areas (for your own use only) if you want to take them into quarries, up hills, or out in the rain.

The normal loan period will be one month.

We hope that you will find something interesting and useful. We also need your help if the system is to grow. If you can offer materials to lend to other members or donations for the library, or if you have any suggestions, please get in touch with Elizabeth.
