Missed your Library induction? Here’s what to do…

Last week was Welcome Week: I spent my time running around the Trust, trying to give library inductions to all the courses present. And I met 332 new students in the process!

If by chance you were in one of the few courses I didn't get to meet or if you couldn't make it to your induction, then you can access an online version of this induction by clicking on the image below.

It should take you about half an hour to complete (just as long as the face-to-face induction) and it will set you up to a good start for this academic year!

Here are topics broached by the induction:
  • How to get help from the library;
  • How to access your reading list;
  • How to use Discovery to search our resources; and
  • How to use our shelfmark system.
And let us know if you have any questions!

Welcome to the library

Welcome to all our new students for this new academic year! And welcome back to all returning students!

This week is Welcome Week so we will be welcoming new students to the library with warm smiles and lots of chocolate...

All courses will also receive an introduction to the library during their course induction.

Our personal librarians are also back in service. If you don't know who your personal librarian is, check the list over here, then send them an email to say hello!
