Better resourced than ever before
You told us that our range of information resources was something that you valued highly.
“The university library provides a fantastic service to all students. The texts available both in print and online editions are extensive.”
We subscribe to more than twice as many ejournals this year as last, we have bought over 90,000 more books and ebooks to ensure that where possible we provide enough copies of all the books you need to study at your convenience. Having all these resources is of little use if you cannot easily find what you need, and so we also redesigned our website to make it easier for you to find the things you most often need, and made everything much easier to find on your phone.
Following the popularity of our existing referencing guidance, we updated, expanded and rewrote our online referencing guidance and our printed referencing booklets this year to make both more comprehensive them easier to follow. You told us you found it hard to understand why you needed to reference what you read and how referencing worked in principle, so we added sections to all our guides to explain how and why referencing works. We now run the ever popular referencing pop-ups in the Atrium in the approach to every deadline to offer that little extra in depth help as you come closer to submitting your work.
