Find out what's changed over the summer
Search@Library is now the main way to find Library resources. Search@Library has a clean look and feel and, more importantly, makes it easier to find journal articles and books. Benefits include a neat and intuitive way to focus your search results, using categories like online or print, library location, year and language.
There is a new Skills collection on level 8 of the Edward Boyle Library. You'll find general books on study skills, research skills, critical thinking, reading, writing, note taking, maths, assessment/exams, coping with stress, organisation and communication skills.
Use Search@Library to locate books on a particular topic.
Photocopiers replaced with Print, Copy, Scan machines
We've replaced photocopiers with multi-function Print, Copy, Scan machines in all main campus libraries. These are already used for printing and scanning in ISS clusters, so you may already be familiar with how they work.
The MyPrint service is available to all staff and students, and provides access to on-demand printing, copying and scanning facilities. There are more than 60 Print, Copy, Scan machines across campus. You can check your print account, buy more printer credits, and find out more about printing services via the IT & Libraries tab on the Portal.
New ways to keep in touch
The main differences for this academic year are some small changes to the look and feel, with reduced wording wherever possible. We hope this improves the user experience without changing the essentials that students and staff are familiar with.
Relocation of the Psychology Collection
The Psychology Collection has moved from the Edward Boyle Library to the Health Sciences Library, bringing all Faculty of Medicine and Health collections together. Use Search@Library to locate books on a particular topic.
Audio-visual material moved
Audio-visual material (videos, DVDs and CDs) has moved from level 8 of the Edward Boyle Library to a new study area on level 10.
Edward Boyle Library stack re-ordering
We've reorganised and respaced everything in the stack into one easy-to-use alphabetical sequence.
The Final Chapter: the undergraduate research project guide
The Final Chapter is a new online guide designed to help with your final-year research project.
