A series of ‘Where Can I Get Help?’ events have been arranged to take place across the University during November. The aim of these events is to raise awareness to the various teams that are able to help both staff and students and create an opportunity for these teams to promote their services and resources. These events were publicised via posters, leaflets, emails, iCity and Twitter.
The first event took place on Friday 13 November, just outside the library on level one of Curzon Building from 10am to 12pm. Situated next to the social learning area, students were able to stop by as they moved through the building.
We set up a display and used two large tables provided by Campus Services. On one table we displayed a variety of our leaflets and business cards, with the other table being used for displaying the study tips that students wrote down on post-it notes which were then displayed on a poster. This table was also used for coffee, tea, cakes and biscuits, which all went down well! We handed out lots of leaflets, business cards and refreshments, and had a chance to chat about where students could go to get help. There were several Library and Learning Resources staff to answers students questions throughout the two hours, and without all of their help the event would not have been a success. We talked to lots of students throughout the event and gained valuable feedback from them along with lots of useful study tips.
Overall the event was a huge success. A big thank you must be given to the staff who volunteered to help and made the event not only a huge success but a very enjoyable event to be part of.
