Saturday (23 September) is Bi Visibility Day. You might be wondering why a day has been set aside to celebrate this rather specific sexual orientation. Let me explain…
Whatever befalls you in life, you may rely on The Onion for biting, on-point satire. Even with the grim spectre of right-wing extremism on the rise in America, we may rely on The Onion to bring us happy parody and lighten the mood.
Drop in and close the door on the outside world with these newest additions to our informal drop-in meeting spaces. You might have seen the open-sided sound baffling drop-in meeting pods on the ground floor and the goldfish bowl style ones with the sliding doors but these latest additions to our collection of diverse study spaces really offer something new.
Congratulations to Becky Rule in the Library Enquiries Team on recently achieving her CILIP Chartership and being awarded a CILIP 125 List Award, given to recently chartered librarians making a positive contribution to the libraries where they work!
I promised you some months ago a brand new look for the highly popular drop-in seating area near the Law books up on the first floor. Our furniture moving is complete and we are pleased to reveal the leather-bound luxury seating up in Area 1C.
It’s great to be able to say hello to our early arrivals who have been stopping by the Library the last few days. Ask library staff all your questions, pop your head around the office door during the week and say hello to the library skills drop-in librarian or chat to us online 24/7 for instant answers to all your questions.
I have been weeding our oldest blog posts and came across this oddity from back in the late 2000s about text generation in Microsoft Word that reveals what we did in the days before ChatGPT generated random text for us. Behold a wondrous technological workaround of the past.
The Library elves have been hard at work fetching and carrying books this summer just gone, finding ways to arrange them so they take up less space. Not only does this mean we can fit in more study space for you to enjoy, but anyone in a wheelchair now has access to the gender neutral, accessible toilets in area 1C.
Another open day arrives! Let’s hope the weather holds up. Friendly Library staff will be here to greet you all day and help you find your way around the building, with informal tours Library offered between 10 am – 12 noon. Help yourself to our promotional postcards, which tell you a little bit more about what we offer, and check out more content here on the Library blog and website for much more online.
