Getting organised for Semester Two
As Semester Two gets underway we thought we'd pass on some reminders about making the most of the Library and being organised in your studies: Get extra help in essay writing, finding information, referencing, analysing data or IT Skills via the Skills for Learning programme of free workshops - just book via their website. Alternatively you could watch or listen to one of their recorded workshops or podcasts or take a look at their web resources. If you're searching for information for your assignments or dissertations take a look the Subject Guides on the Library website. These will direct you to the right information for your topic and if you still need help you can book a one-to-one appointment with your Academic Librarian.
Connect your mobile devices to eduroam for the fastest and most secure access to the internet when you're on campus and download Microsoft Office 365 and SPSS so you have the software you need wherever you are working. But always save and back up your work so you don't lose it and have to do it all again! Don't leave sorting our your references and bibliographies until the very end of your piece of work - keep a record as you go along and use Quote Unquote as a guide. If you ever get stuck with MyBeckett or Turnitin we have online guides to talk you through finding your way around and submitting assignments and when it comes to submitting your Semester 2 Turnitin assignments, remember to check your file type and file size against Turnitin’s rules and requirements before submitting. Searching for information, writing and printing your assignments can often take more time than you think - use the Assignment Calculator to help you plan. And book your Student Meeting Room in plenty of time to get together to discuss any group assignments. If you've forgotten your Library PIN or you're not sure how to collect a Hold or access an eBook our YouTube Library Shorts will give you quick and easy guidance on using the Library and all the services and support available to you. But remember you can always Contact Us for help as well.
