Periodicals are mostly in the English language although some in German, French, Swedish and Russian are also required
Much of the material of a theoretical nature on Computation, acquired by the Department; will be used by the staff of the Computer Centre, although it is not being acquired expressly for them. The Computer Centre has its own library of computer programs, technical manuals and works on the operation of the University's computers.
Virtually everything acquired is currently published.
- Books, primarily currently produced.
- Periodicals, both current and backfile.
- Selected theses.
- Working papers of similar Departments in other Universities are exchanged for the working papers published by the Unit. These are collected and housed in the Unit Library.
- Laboratory manuals and work books.
- Audio-Visual materials such as audio tapes, pictures and slide-tape shows are generated by this Department. These are housed in the Department Library or in the Health Sciences Library.
- Data tapes might be considered for selection to support work done by researchers in the Health Sciences.
