Have you signed up for student IT training?
The whole IT student training programme starts over on 2nd November. Book your place online at http://studentittraining.port.ac.uk. If classroom IT training is not your thing, there are many videos you can watch to develop your skills from Lynda.com, and you can use these towards obtaining the University’s Digital Skills Certificate!
If your challenges are concerned more with finding and referencing information, chat to a librarian in person or online.
