If you are joining the University in Semester 2 here are some helpful things to get you started with using the Library.
We know University assignments can be scary so whether you are worried about finding information, referencing or leaving things to the last minute, don't worry there is lots of support available. Library staff will be out and about this Halloween to help calm your fears!
Leeds Beckett Academic Librarian Ellie Clement gives us her top 10 tips for writing the perfect assignment.
Sheila Silver Library at City Campus and Headingley Library are open 24/7, 365 days a year and MyBeckett is where you’ll find your modules, assignments, reading lists, email and timetable plus Library resources for your subject. There's a lot to take in during the first few weeks of university so we've put together a checklist to get you started.
We upgrade to a new version of MyBeckett every year to make sure it’s in the best shape possible to support you. But, we need time to complete the upgrade and to test the system and functionality so that MyBeckett is in full working order when it comes back online. The upgrade is carried out over the Summer to minimise disruption during the teaching year - this years upgrade means it should never need to be down for future maintenance!
Just graduated? Planning to stay on for a postgrad course? The Library can help keep your study skills on track.
The Library and the Students’ Union Advice Service are once again offering support and information to ensure you “Write Right” - develop good academic practice and maintain your academic integrity as you prepare for dissertations and final assignments.
Whether you've made it through your first semester at university or are halfway through your course, make sure you are ready to deal with any possible 'potholes' along the way.
The semester two Skills for Learning workshop programme is now available to book but if you can't get to a session we've identified 6 highlights from the website that can help you develop your academic skills.
November is AcWriMo – Academic Writing Month! An annual event aimed at helping you set and achieve your writing goals, with Leeds Beckett Library on hand to help.
