Dear all

As shown in the attachment, I have got a book in which the sides are labelled with sticky notes. When I put the book into my bag, one of the problem that I face is the bending of the sticky notes as a result of contact with my bag.

Does anyone have a suggestion as to how can I protect the sticky notes?

Thanks :)

Possibly insert the book spine down and don't put stuff on top.

Get a clear folder and put the book in that first.

Oops, wrong section of the forum.

wmoore: University student = Poor student
sweep: There are sticky notes coming from the top side of the book as well
pctek: Hmmmm... The book is too thick to be put into a clear folder

Make a larger hard cover for the book:
Score fold lines on cheap/free op shop plastic placemats or cardboard plus duct tape..

A gorgeous blond 'assistant' called Melody to carry it for you?

Preferably wearing a tight blouse and short skirt. . . . . .:wub

Carry it on its own - ie no bag

Sheesh :(

The tabs seem to be all on one page or within a few pages? If so, why not just photo copy for reference. Or maybe search if a free online book exists, or Amazon may have a online book cheap...

And the book will somehow stay upright?

Can't do - 1) There isn't an ebook version available, and more importantly - 2) I can only bring in the book but not a laptop for the open-book test

Brilliant idea! :D

In a wet and rainy day, that book won't survive the ordeal of being carried around.

Can't do. Not allowed to bring photocopies of the book into the test.

As opposed to a shop that moves so you can't find it I guess?

But taking the whole book in to the exam is OK?? :groan::groan:

Open book test.

Personally I don't really need the book, but it is always good to have it in case I can't recall the exact legislations that pertain to the cases.

For a serious answer, my daughter used to have a hard plastic book container for some of her text books. I'm unsure of what sizes they come in but I'm sure somewhere like Warehouse Stationary might be able to help you out.

I'll ask her about it when she gets home and try getting a pic to you. From what I remember, it folds down flat and you fold and lock it with tabs. Let you know later if I can.

Move the stickys closer to the spine, so only 5mm or so sticks out. Even if you can'y see text on them, they're still a quick index to flick through.

Don't text books these days have a Table of Contents?
