Welcome to Library Services
Library Services extends a warm welcome to all new and returning students for the forthcoming academic year 2014/2015.
Download our Welcome programme (PDF - 420KB) to find out about all the services we offer and book onto one of the many workshops we are running during your first week.
During your first few weeks of study we recommend that you take some time to get to know our libraries. You will need to know how to find/borrow books, how to access electronic journals and other resources and where to locate the Academic Skills Centre so you can get help with your studies. Join one of the library tours, or visit Getting Started to see what we can offer .
Help with your subject
Our information desks offer a wide range of general support to new students and in each subject an expert Subject Advisor can give you tailored advice on how to obtain all the best books, articles and information that you will need for your modules, and how to reference your work correctly.
Our PASS scheme gives you an opportunity to work together and discuss your learning with higher year students.
Develop your academic skills
We are a university with an outstanding research record and ethos and place great emphasis on supporting our students to develop effective learning and research strategies. If you want to brush-up on your general academic, writing, research and mathematical skills then the Academic Skills Centre has a range of development and support options available to you, from 1-1 and drop-in sessions, face-to-face workshops or on-line resources.
So, make it your mission to get to know us, and the expert services we offer. We're here to help and support you throughout your studies.
