Books (and videos) I want

Posted by Laura on Tuesday, 2 November, 2010

As I’ve been visiting libraries and bookstores, I’ve been writing down and taking pictures of materials that I would like the University of Canberra Library to acquire.  If that isn’t possible, I’ve been noting these with the hopes that some random reader may have these books or books like these that they might want to permanently part (trade?) with so that I can read them.  (It never hurts to ask.  You never know.  If you have some Australian or Kiwi related sport books that you want to get rid of, let me know.  If you have general books about Australian rules football or netball or field hockey, also let me know.)  This is the list that I’ve come up with so far:
