Using the Library

The Library is CUSFS' several-thousand-book repository of science fiction and fantasy tomes. We also have films and a small number of communal board games.

Q: How do I find an item I'm looking for?

There are lots of ways to do this. You can browse items alphabetically by clicking Browse in the menu bar. You can also browse by author or series name. Sort by category (e.g. graphic novels or tie-ins) under the Category tab. Alternatively, use the search box.

Q: How do I search?

There's a search box in the orange menu bar. Try short strings which will be found verbatim in the item's title, for example "Game of Thrones" or "Amazing Maurice". "Game Thrones" won't work. If you can't find what you're looking for, try searching by author name or series title. You can also search for users by name and TTBAs by content.

Q: There's a typo in one of the items. Can I change it?

No, but you can email us and we can change it instead. (Seriously, please do! The gradual polishing of all entries in the Library is an ongoing process...)

Q: What's the deal on borrowing?

First, ensure you've got an account with us. Then attend a library opening session and you can get the Librarian to check out up to 10 books for as long as you like. (Well, we'd like them back before you graduate. But there's no enforced time limit.) You can return them at opening sessions too.

Q: I can't get to a library opening session! What should I do?

You can reserve books if you have an account with us. Just log in and click "reserve a book". We'll then organise to give you the books, either in person or in your pidge.


Q: How do I get an account?

You need to be a CUSFS member. Come to any CUSFS meeting and the memsec will sign you up. You'll then get an email with account details and instructions on how to change your password.

Q: Can I delete my account?

Sure (sniff :C ). Email a commmittee member and they'll delete your account. We're sorry to see you go!
