But how can you use it ethically and skillfully to help you produce great assignments without crossing the line and being accused of cheating?

The University is embarking on an ambitious new project to join the University Library and Student Union buildings to create a luxurious new student hub featuring a diverse range of study spaces to suit all purposes and people.  Alongside this, we are reviewing library space and focusing initially on a dedicated space for postgraduate study. From 15 July, the old Postgraduate Study Suite will be moving into a temporary new location as we begin this exciting work.

The University Library invites you to visit and find out about the wonderful collection Outside in World: Children’s Books in Translation by joining us at one of our upcoming drop-ins.

Situated near the Library Café, we actively encourage the use of this unique collection to support research and teaching, community outreach, and reading for pleasure.
