Popping up but trying not to scare you!

Last week was a week of Library Pop ups!

Popping up but trying not to scare you

We ran a spooky Halloween pop up at both campuses asking you whether there was anything you found “scary” about the Library. (Apart from this photo!)

Our Skills for Learning team also ran pop ups telling people about their essay writing week and highlighting their websiteworkshops and publications.

So what did you tell us?………………………

You said that you found finding information “scary.”

Deciding where to start can feel overwhelming but there’s lots of ways to make it easier:

  • Use Discover for fast and easy searching of our books and journals. We have a number of Discover videos to help you get started
  • Take a look at your subject pages for loads of useful information that will be specific to your topic
  • Make an appointment with your Academic Librarian – book an appointment online from your subject pages
  • Book on a “Finding Information for your Assignments” workshop from Skills for Learning. Or use their online tutorial to help you
  • Come and see us on the Help and Information Point in either Library

You said that you found assignments “scary.”

Again knowing where to start, which topic to choose and writing that first sentence can be hard, but follow our tips to help you get going!

You said you found finding books “scary.” But don’t struggle and leave the Library empty handed!

You said you sometimes found it “scary” finding a PC or somewhere quiet to study

  • Use PC availability to help you find a free PC when you arrive
  • Have a look at our webpages to help you find the place that’s right for you to study

Finally don’t forget there’s lots of help available from the Library, please don’t be afraid to ask!
