Library & IT Drop-in CANCELLED Thursday 2nd February 3-4pm and Getting Help

Our Library and IT drop-in session on Thursday 2nd February (3-4 pm in the IT Training Suite) has had to be cancelled in order for staff to attend a meeting.

Our drop-ins resume as normal the following week.  They run three times a week during term time: 11-12 on Tuesdays, 12-1 on Wednesdays and 3-4 on Thursdays on level 2 of the Library in the IT Training Suite.  Feel free to pop along and see us if you’ve got any questions about referencing, RefWorks, finding information for coursework, using LibrarySearch or specialist Library databases and resources, formatting documents (table of contents etc.) and loads more! There’s also help with Pebblepad on a Wednesday.

Please remember that a Librarian is always on-call Monday-Friday from 9am to 5pm so even if you can’t make it to a drop-in session, there will be someone on hand to help with referencing and resource queries.  Just ask at SEZ and they’ll contact the on-call Librarian for you.

As we’re not around to help on Thursday afternoon, here’s a few useful places that you might find the answer to your queries:
