- 其他的书, where a smaller proportion of the book will be required reading, should be placed on the recommended list.
- Departments should ensure that prescribed textbooks (in the same edition) will be utilized for at least three years.
- 当推荐的书, staff should check whether these books are available in the 图书馆, 如果没有, ensure that they are included in the books ordered by the Department from their funding allocation. Books should not be recommended unless students have access to them. The 图书馆 can assist through the electronic ‘course reserves system.
- When deciding which books to prescribe, staff should ascertain the cost of possible choices, as one factor bearing on the final decision.
