For those of you studying on distance learning courses, why not check out the Offsite team webgpages – we’re dedicated to supporting distance learners in their use of the Library. You can contact us with any Library/IT related queries and we also have a service to post out books to students on eligible courses. Joining Offsite is quick and easy to do – just complete the online form at the Library tab in MyBeckett, or contact us if you have any queries about Offsite.
You might also want to think about joining the Leeds Beckett Distance Learning Community. This is for all Leeds Beckett distance learning students to get to know each other, to ask the Distance Learning Unit any queries, and to get up-to-date information on a wide variety of topics relevant to distance learners. Why not sign up here to become part of the community?
You could also check out the Library page for your own particular subject, where you will find details of your Academic Librarian, the Library subject specialist for your area. You’ll find details of how to contact them if you ever need to and also information on a whole host of resources. The Skills for Learning team also have a collection of resources to support the learning and teaching of academic skills which you might find useful.
Finally, at the start of your course, you might be feeling really excited or maybe a little bit daunted if it’s a while since you’ve done any studying – or you might feel a mixture of all of those things. Please don’t worry – there are lots of people around to help you, and no question is too small to ask, so please do contact us if you have any queries. You can also get in touch with the main Library contact points as well via email, online chat or 24/7 phone support for advice and information on Library and IT services – including password resets.
Good luck with your studies and we look forward to hearing from you!
