University allocates extra money for books
10 February 2011
Students at Bristol will benefit from a £125,000 boost to this year’s library budget to enable the purchase of additional books and key student texts.
The University has found the extra funding via alumni donations, despite the current financial pressures on higher education, in recognition of student feedback and the vital importance to students of an adequate supply of books.
The additional spending follows previous extra funding of £250,000 in 2009/10, as well as ongoing investment in physical improvements to the library buildings.
