We’re bringing back our ever popular referencing drop-ins! We answer referencing questions by email, online chat, face to face at the Library skills drop-in and you can even book appointments to sit down with a a librarian and a long list of referencing questions. Yet, what we’ve found, year in and year out, is that we see more of you when we pop up in another part of the Library than we ever get to come to us.

Whether it is the colourful banner, the smiling librarians in plain view, or the sight of so many other people stopping by to offload their referencing woes and come away feeling better, we’re not sure. What we do know is that you like them, so we’re popping up again next week! Look out for our stand in the Library Atrium from 11 am – 3 pm between 13 – 24 November.

The “Welcome” section of the Library website introduces the most important library services you will use over the next few years in a simple, bite-sized format. Here you will find a short welcome video, a self-guided virtual tour of the Library that can help you to familiarise yourself with the building before you even step through the doors, a guided audio tour of the building, a brief slideshow of things you will want to know before you arrive, and a link to our opening times webpage.

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.
