 Club Library News

 

         It has always bothered me that the library, wherever it has currently been, has not been accessible to many mambers, because of limited access time or because we just can’t get to where it is.  It is no different now, even though we have a club house.  Doesn’t matter that we have plenty of interesting magazines and those so useful Citroen manuals, and even a few worthwhile books just for general reading.  We can’t easily get to them.  It is even more difficult for those outside Brisbane.

         It is also a problem for those who can access it, as for reasons of security, the Manuals are not for loan, as loaned books do not always return;  not to mention that they would soon deteriorate if used with greasy hands while working on our cars, and they are a valuable asset.

         The internet has been a life saver,  as most can now access that, and many, if not all manuals are now available for downloading, making it easy to copy the pages you currently need for a particular job, and the manuals are then always there for reference.  What is available I do not know yet, but I soon will.

         I am finally addressing the problem and have so far downloaded manuals and parts lists for Tractions, Ds, GS and GSAs, and CXs.  The idea is to burn them on to DVDs and flash drives and make them available to club members.  Thanks to Mark Gordon and Allen Maze for help in locating these sites.

         If we have manuals or information that is not available, then I will copy what we have and include it with the rest of the DVDs that will be available for all club members..  There will also be articles included on the DVDs by our members and from other sources that are not readily available, but are very useful.

         Seeing that DVDs on computers are being phased out and replaced by Flash Drives or USB Sticks, the same files will be available for sale on Flash drives.  

         Cost of DVDs,   $5,     Flash drives,  $10.  plus postage if that applies, and will publish a list of what is currently available on the drives.

 I am looking forward to the time that we can make the library as useful to us all as it should be.

                                       Len French.  Club Librarian.      17.11.2016
