Help is at hand!

January 18, 2018

help me

This week it has been “Mind your mate week” across the university. Here in the Library, we like to provide as much help as we possibly can on a variety of topics. I mentioned Subject Guides – your starting point for help on accessing subject-specific information – last week, and today I want to talk about our series of Help Guides. We have a growing number of Help Guides on a number of subject including accessing electronic resources, accessing ebooks, Reading Lists Online and research support. Access the Help Guides from the library website.


Making the most of British Library Collections: Doctoral Open Days at the British Library

November 16, 2015

The British Library will be starting a series of open days in early 2016 aimed at first year PhD students to discover how the British Library’s unique collections can be used in research. Eight open days are being offered, each focussing on a different subject. A small charge to attend is payable, and it is also possible for attendees to obtain a free reader pass to make the most of the visit to the British Library. Full details of these events are available here.
