On Thursday 9th February our Peer Mentor Isaac will be hosting a new session, designed to follow-on from the last drop-in session.
This session will look into the advanced features of ‘Summon’ and how to find the best results. There will be a secondary focus on the Libguides website which has been prepared by the Librarians to guide students in a particular area of study, containing popular online resources such as specific databases, the most useful books on the subject, as well as research assistance.

On Tuesday 24th January our Library Peer Mentor will be holding a drop-in session 10.30-11.30am near the first floor Curzon Library entrance. Why not pop along and learn something new!
This drop-in session will be focusing on journal articles and how to use Summon to the best of its ability in order to receive the best results. We have prepared six top tips that are guaranteed to return the most appropriate articles for you work. We will also be highlighting the ‘Live Chat with a Librarian’ facility available from the Library Help website.
