Every month Customer Services staff put on a pop up “How to …” event visiting each of our four libraries and provide students with information and support about various different topics. Past How to events have covered getting started in the library, where to find study spaces and using our libraries over the vacation.
This month’s theme is “How to … start your research” and library staff will be on hand to show you how to search the library’s resources, book a tutorial with a librarian, and find out how Centre for Academic Success and Personal Development Department (PDD) (City South) can help you too.
Research from the University of Huddersfield has found there is a statistically significant correlation between library usage and final degree result.
Learning how to use the library and search can potentially help you gain better marks, and save time too so pop along to one of our sessions below:
||12pm to 2pm
|Margaret Street Library
||12pm to 1pm
|City South Library
||11am to 1pm
|Vittoria Street Library
||12pm to 1pm
