It’s a brand new year, and to celebrate, we’re hiding 10 Golden Tickets in our libraries over the next two weeks. Each Golden Ticket wins a prize!
Follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to find out where each Golden Ticket is hidden!
The competition is running from Monday 25th September to Friday 6th October.
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.
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.

This event is being jointly organised by the Students Union and Library and Learning Resources.
We aim to start this event off by having a ‘raising awareness’ session on Monday 8 May in Curzon Atrium. At this session we are inviting service providers from across the University (Centre for Academic Success, Student Affairs, Complaints team, MIND, SCRATCH radio, Graduate+, Students Union and of course Library and Learning Resources) to have a stand to promote how their service can help students through the stressful time of their exams.
The remaining sessions will run through May and June across campus libraries. These sessions range from:
Bubble wrap stations
Exam Tips + promotion of water fountains and free plastic cups
Chill Out zones
Table Top games
Anxiety and Mindfulness workshops
The majority of these events will run at City Centre campus, but are open to all students.
Students Union will be producing posters to market the event and give further details about each individual session. These posters will be displayed in prominent sites at each campus.
