The launch of the Eddie Whiteside Chess Library

This weekends Ulster Masters sees the launch of the Eddie Whiteside Chess Library. Some 40 excellent books will be available to borrow. This is an exciting new project for the UCU to encourage the study of chess and the use of this excellent educational resource.

The Library will be available at UCU tournaments. You will be able to request a book in advance by contacting Mark Newman (UCU Secretary). We would encourage clubs to use the books and DVDs as coaching tools and to share any developed lesson plans etc as a way of developing a shared educational set of resources.

To borrow a book we ask members to register as a library member - with a deposit of £3. (to cover costs and any losses).

This is the  beginning of an exciting project - it needs your support to succeed. Borrow a book, study it, improve your chess and if you can share your learning and enthusiasm by writing a summary of the book or using it as material to coach your club or fellow players...good luck with your learning....

The books available include:
