New Student Quick Help Sessions: Thursday 3rd & Friday 4th September

A big HELLO to all our new students from Library Services!

You’re now fully enrolled and have access to all of your Library and IT facilities – that’s a lot of stuff to find your way around.  So, we’re running some quick start sessions on all the essentials to help you on your way.

In the next few days you’ll need to find out how to:

  • Check your personal information online
  • Use the printers
  • Access online learning materials for your course
  • Borrow books from the Library
  • Get more help if you need it

Our online guide for new students Getting Started @ Abertay shows you how to do all of this and more!

You can also come along to the Library and attend quick start sessions to get more help and see demonstrations of some key tools and equipment.  Meet at the SEZ desk, Level 1 at the following times:
