Welcome new students! (And returners too)

It’s lovely to see our new library bustling with students today! Hope you haven’t had to queue too long to see our lovely staff at the Library Desk if you’ve had any questions to ask. They’ve been very popular!

It was great to meet so many of you at your library induction sessions last week. Remember, you can find lots of information online from your Subject Support pages on the library website and on Blackboard. (The library induction material is on Blackboard, if you’d like a refresher, or if you’ve lost your Need to Know Checklist!) If you missed your induction last week, don’t worry, we’re holding a couple of extra sessions this week:-

2-3pm Thursday 1st October, PC Room 1 in Bay Library

1-2pm Friday 2nd October, PC Room 1 in Bay Library

Please come along to one of these sessions if you couldn’t come last week. If you have any questions, please get in touch:
