Module leader reading list training workshops in March

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.

Reading for Pleasure Book Exchange

The Library has put together a book exchange where you can grab interesting titles to read for pleasure. These are not library books, so they don't need issuing. Take one and enjoy! If you have any books you think others might like to read, please drop them off at the library or pop them on the Book Exchange trolley right outside the library entry gates.
