A warm welcome to all our new and returning students this year!
We’ve made a few changes to the library since you’ve been away – all designed to make it a more accessible space and easier for you find what you need.
New Quick Reference Shelf Signage
(includes the main shelf number and some cover art of the recommended texts from your reading lists)
Keep an eye out for these little beggars popping up around the library. These are QR codes and if you have a smart phone and the right app, you can take a photo of the image and it will lead to you the catalogue or a book review or a website or ….. well you never know.
Canny observers will notice that we’ve moved the study section lock, stock and carell to the other end of the library. Now you’ll be nearer the enquiry desks, resources and catalogue (and, ok fair enough, we’ll be able to keep a better eye on the messers. I know, we spoil all your fun)
We have been blessed with a new fancy schmantzy TV and we’ll use it to screen library induction information, answers to your FAQ’s, advtertise new stock and all manner of other useful info. We’ve also added a lot of new graphic novel and manga titles this year and you’ll find them in this area too. All the books aren’t just on the shelves to make the place look pretty – they are for you to read and borrow, so get in there an make a mess.
