We're podcasting!

We are delighted to announce the beginning of a series of podcasts from your library!

Our aim is to help you to use our resources effectively so we hope our podcasts will give you another way in which to learn more about us.

You can listen to the podcast on your computer or on your MP3 player. We also have an RSS feed that you can subscribe to so you will be alerted to any new podcasts we produce.

We still ironing out some issues with the hosting of the podcasts, so if you try and download these while on campus you will find it takes a long time. But if you are off campus, the download time will be dependent on your connection speed.

We'd love to have feedback! Please let us know what you think.

Searchpath Online Tutorial

Work through our new interactive online tutorial to help you locate and use information effectively and develop good research skills. The tutorial is self-paced and self-assessed. There are six modules:
Starting smart, choosing a topic, using the library catalogue, finding articles, using the web and citing sources.
Lecturers: talk to the library staff about incorporating or adapting this tutorial into your teaching.

The Search Path Tutorial is available on our home page through the Online Library Tutorials link.
