Collection Spotlight: Gale Complete

A collection spotlight

Good news! We have added a suite of databases to our collection, which you can find via the A-Z of Resources (iCity login required):

  • Academic OneFile
  • Archives Unbound
  • Gale Literary Index and Encyclopaedia of Literature
  • Gale Virtual Reference Library
  • General OneFile
  • Infotrac Newsstand

These resources span a wide range of subjects and are linked to Summon for easy searching. The collection includes thousands of journals/articles, ebooks, audio/video files, and full access to The Economist, The New York Times, The Times and The Financial Times.

There’s something in these resources for everybody, so it’s well worth spending a bit of time familiarising yourself with them. Remember you can always pop into Curzon/Seacole Libraries and speak to a librarian to learn more, or you can arrange a tutorial with your Learning, Teaching and Research subject librarian.

Happy browsing!

Library drop-in session: tips for exam revision

On Thursday 11th May 2017 our Library Peer Mentor is hosting a drop-in session to talk about revising for your exams. Come and visit us in Curzon Atrium, 11am-12pm.

We will be asking students for their own top tip when they are revising and we are going to be compiling them in a poster which will be displayed in the library as well as on the Library’s blog. The aim of this is to promote better revision/study practices among students in a collaborative way. As always, we will also be promoting many of the library’s services that aid revision and assignment writing such as LibAnswers, LibGuides and Inter-Library Loans.
