Hello and welcome / welcome back from all of us here at the Library!
This blog will be used to keep you up to date with what’s happening in the Library and what resources and sources of help are available to you. And, we want to hear from you, so please leave comments and questions on the blog.
For undergraduates, most of the books you need will be in the Information Commons. Take a look at the virtual tour of the IC.
You may also want to familiarise yourself with the Western Bank Library. Take a look at the virtual tour to help find your way around.
There’s plenty of info on the Library website to help you settle in. It’s all a bit daunting at first, so please don’t hesitate to ask staff if you’re unsure about anything.
Try these things to get you started:
Here are some basics you’ll need to know to find your way around and borrow books. There's also information on how the Library can help you with your studies.
You’ll need to use Star (the library catalogue) to find out where to access books and journals, so familiarise yourself with this and use the Help section for tips on how to search.
As well as offering physical space to study, the Library provides a huge range of resources online. See our screencasts to get you started.
The best way to access all our resources is to login to MUSE and go to the ‘Library’ tab.
For History specific help, see the subject guide.
See your reading lists online with myResource Lists – this links you to recommended readings for your modules.
For further help with how to find information for seminars and assignments, have a go at our Information Skills Tutorials.
Enjoy intro week!
