Test the new LibrarySearch interface to win a £50 Amazon voucher!

Calling volunteers: your Library needs you!

We’re looking for participants from all years of study to help us test out the brand new LibrarySearch interface.  This is your chance to have input into how our Discovery system performs – if there’s something you don’t like, we want to know!

Between Tuesday 18th-Thursday 27th April look out for pop-up testing sessions around the Library.  Each session takes around 30 minutes with a few set tasks aimed at gathering feedback on functionality and usability plus you’ll have the opportunity to make suggestions on the overall look and feel of the system.

If you’d prefer to book an appointment to give your feedback please email library@abertay.ac.uk or complete the contact form below and we’ll arrange a suitable date/time.

All participants will be entered into a prize draw with one lucky winner bagging a £50 Amazon voucher!  That’s not to be sniffed at 🙂  There will also be goodies handed out to a few runners up.

We really value your input and hope you’ll be excited to see the changes coming with the new version of LibrarySearch.  It has a much more streamlined interface plus a lot of nifty functionality which will make the process of finding and using information much easier.


Whole Lotta Fun, Prizes To Be Won! Halloween Competition Time

We love Halloween here in Library Services so thought we’d have a spooky little giveaway in celebration.

If you’d like to win a selection of useful goodies (see below) all you have to do is:

  • Be a current Abertay student
  • Follow us on Twitter @AbertayLibrary
  • Tell us what literary inspired Halloween costume you’d pick if you were going to an awesome party (or studying hard in the Library…)
  • Tweet us your entries, the cutoff is Midnight on Sunday – if you have a photo of you wearing said literary inspired costume, even better!  You can enter up to 5 times.

We will pick a winning costume idea by 5pm on Monday 2nd November and tweet the winner.  We’ll also have a small selection of goodies for some runners-up.

Prize includes: Book/shopping bag, Large IEEE cotton t-shirt, various notebooks and pens, stress ball (it’s diamond shaped though!), pocket mirror, plasters, sticky notes, bottle opener key ring, glasses cloth, handy coaster (nobody likes a pesky tea stain on their desk), car charger, a ‘soft stylus torch pen’ from the future and a multi-device USB charger


Happy Halloween!
