Module leader reading list training workshops Nov-Jan

The Library offers 1-hour workshops to all module leaders to learn how to use reading list software for creating and editing your own module reading list(s). You do not need to book onto a workshop, just turn up at a time to suit you. Please contact your subject librarian, if you are unable to attend at the scheduled times. Workshops for departments or groups of staff can also be arranged via your subject librarian.

Essential maintenance to Library systems

On Mon 18 Nov we will be undertaking essential maintenance to two of our servers. This will mean that from 17:00 you won't be able to pay any fines or add money to your printing/photocopying account. We hope that these services will be restored by 20:00.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Two new Group Study Rooms

We have two new Group Study Rooms on Floor 0 in the Library:

Room 0.07

Room 0.08

Both can be accessed 24 hours a day and can also be booked at the weekend.

360 Link

On Mon 29 July we will be introducing 360 Link - our new linking service which takes you from Summon and database search results to the full-text of your chosen journal article.

You should notice very little difference to how the service currently works other than the SFX button becoming a 360 Link button. This new service will also be found in Google Scholar, EndNote and Pubmed.

No service disruption is expected during the change over.
