Studying from home
Now that teaching is online you'll need to access your resources online too. Discover searches most of your online resources for you - if you need an introduction there are videos on our YouTube Channel. There are lots of other useful tutorials on there too.
The Resources section of the Library website has quick links to online resources such as eBooks, subject databases and journals. We are also adding new resources publishers are offering for free during this period to our Library Database A-Z pages. You can see a list of the new resources in the New / Trail database list, and the date they available to. And we've introduced a new eBook request service to temporarily replace Beckett Books Extra.
You can also use video research tools such as Box of Broadcasts and Kanopy, to access high quality TV programmes or video content to support your learning. Or catch up with the news via PressReader which has a huge collection of local and national newspapers.
You can still get academic skills support and help with finding resources via online, phone or email.
Sue Smith, our Learning Support Officer (Disability and Dyslexia) is available for phone appointments. You can book a phone appointment using the “Book an Appointment” link on the Disabled and Dyslexic users page. When you book you will be given the choice between using a phone or Microsoft Teams for your appointment.
If you need to attend an online meeting/seminar/webinar but are unsure how, we have guides to help you to login and access MS Teams, Google Meet and Adobe Connect online meetings. These are available at the top of the IT tab in MyBeckett. Please note Chromebooks don’t support Adobe Connect or Skype for Business.
When it comes to the time to submit your assignment online. Have a look at our Submitting your assignment blog post, it's full of useful information to help you successfuly submit your assignment.
