HCS is now an O'Reilly User Group (Again)!
HCS has once again registered as an O'Reilly User Group. Among other things, this gives us the opportunity to write and publish reviews of O'Reilly books in exchange for free copies of said books. And this is a good thing - it's a great way to keep our library both current and relevant.
If you're interested in writing a review, you should contact oreilly (at) hcs (.harvard.edu) and say so. Books available for reviewing will be regularly e-mailed to hcs-discuss.
This is probably a good place to promote the HCS library. If you want to borrow technical books stretching back to the beginning of time and Cabot's collection just doesn't cut it for you, check our library in SOCH 307. Members can check out books under the stipulation that they are returned after some reasonable amount of time.
