Library classes and drop-in sessions

If you would like to find out how to search for books, eBooks, and journal articles then sign up for one of the Library research skills classes we are running each week.

Each week we are running these classes on different days and times, they last for an hour and will give you the fundamentals of what you need to find resources for your essays and projects!

The timetable is available here: library classes and drop in sessions and you can sign up for sessions by just clicking the session you are interested in and filling in a form.

But of course sometimes you have a question not covered by these classes, need a quick answer, or would like to speak to someone one to one.

Therefore when the classes are not being run IT Lab 337 is open for everyone to use / drop in to and a member of library staff will be available to answer any questions you have about searching for information. We look forward to seeing you there.
