The books were either recommended by our readers, or by lecturers as part of their undergraduate reading lists (Blue Books), or were new editions of textbooks.

You will see that we have been purchasing more computational chemistry and drug discovery titles, in order to support the increasing amount of research that is taking place in these areas within the department.

We welcome recommendations for the purchase of books (and ebooks) for the Chemistry Library collections from our readers, as well as for journals and databases. Please see the above website for further information on how to do this.
