“Seriously useful”

people-office-group-team.jpg

… just one of the comments from students who attended one of our classes on search skills, Harvard referencing or RefWorks or a drop in session this semester.

Our classes finish tomorrow, but we will still be offering drop in sessions in the coming months.

So if you are on campus, need help with referencing, can’t find journal articles on a topic or just want to know more about searching any of our databases, please come along to a drop in session … we hope you will also find it “seriously useful”.

Not on campus?  Our guides may help you get started but please feel free to email or telephone us with any questions.

We look forward to helping you.

New semester, new workshops

We’d like to let you know that our new Library KnowHOW workshops and drop-in sessions have started for this semester. You can view and sign up for them here. 

If you’d like to ‘KnowHOW to SearchSMART’ to find books and articles for your assignments or ‘KnowHOW to Reference’ using RGU Harvard then check out our timetable and sign up by clicking on the event you want to attend.

You don’t need to sign up for drop-in sessions – just come to the library at the drop-in times and someone will be on hand to help. And if you’re studying at Gray’s we’ll be on site in GA49 between 9.30-11am tomorrow. We hope to see you there!
