NOSAS Publications



NOSAS Library

An up to date document (May 2017) giving an overview of the Library is available here

NOSAS has a small but growing collection of books which are kept in Dingwall Library. A list of current holdings can be found on the NOSAS website. Only NOSAS members are allowed to borrow them – and now we have arrangements in place for you to request books from your local branch of Highland Libraries.

In order to do this you must be a current member of the library. Please note that some of you have lapsed memberships or may never have joined. If in any doubt, contact your local library and make sure your details are up to date.

If you want to borrow a NOSAS book, go into your library, and explain that you are a NOSAS member. The library  staff will check your record which lists you as a member in the Analysis Field. They will then email Dingwall Library with your details and the book details, and the book will then be placed in the Highland van delivery system. This may take up to a couple of weeks, depending on how frequently your branch gets deliveries. You can return the books to any Highland Council library branch.

Just occasionally a book you borrow goes missing or is damaged. NOSAS's expectation is that you would replace the missing book within a month, usually by buying a second-hand book from Amazon, Abebooks, etc. If you fail to do this, we would not let you borrow any further books.

The NOSAS library is happy to take donations if you have some archaeology books you no longer want. Contact Susan on cruachan.hts@googlemail.com if you want to discuss – or if you have problems with requesting books to other locations.
