Congratulations Suzanne, MSc(Econ)!
We’re sending huge congratulations out to our colleague Suzanne Taylor, who this year achieved her Masters in Information and Library Studies. Well done Sue! We’re all really proud of you.
Suzanne found out that she’d passed this summer, but we thought we’d wait until the start of term to share the news as we’re sure a lot of you out there will want to offer some congratulations too. Suzanne will be familiar to those of you at Townhill Campus as the librarian for Psychology and Counselling, Performing Arts and Educational Studies, and regular visitors to Townhill Library will recognise her smiling face! This year, Suzanne has moved to Mount Pleasant Campus to support the staff and students of FACE (Faculty of Architecture Computing and Engineering). Her smiling face remains, so do pop to say hello and ask any questions you may have. She didn’t get that MSc for nothing, you know!
Those of you who’ve been following Suzanne’s story will know that she’s been working hard to complete this Masters as a distance learner with Aberystwyth University whilst working full-time here at UWTSD. As many of you will know first-hand, time-management can be a real challenge when you’re juggling studies with work and other commitments, so last year we ran a series of helpful hints and advice from library staff members who have managed it successfully. We naturally asked Suzanne for her advice, and got some really good tips from other members of staff too!
We’ve also got lots of books in the library that can help you with your study skills such as note-taking, assignment writing, referencing, time-management etc. We’re sure Suzanne would agree that it’s hard work, but definitely worth it in the end! She’s certainly still up for a challenge – Sue is currently working towards Associate Fellow status with the HEA (Higher Education Association) and Chartered status with CILIP (Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals). What a clever clogs! Go for it Sue!
