A-Z of UWTSD Libraries...
We’re officially at the halfway point in our library A-Z! You’ll have learnt a lot about us by now…but there’s still lots more to say! Let’s continue with the letter M…
M is for:
· My Account – With your student ID and PIN number you can access your library account to view a list of books you have on loan, when they are due back and any fines owed. Your account also enables you to place reservations and to renew your library loans yourself. So, next time you realise your library books are due but the library is closed, remember to use your online account!
· Market research – If you’re looking for industry reports, company information or SWOT analysis that’s relevant to a particular topic why not try one of our online databases such as Marketline. We can show you how to use it and take some of the stress out of your research!
· Meeting place – The library is a social place…so, whether you want to get together with friends to work on a joint presentation or assignment or if you just need somewhere to pass the time while you’re between lectures, the library offers plenty of comfortable seating/study/discussion space. Make it a habit to pop in and make use these facilities, we’d love to see you!
· Money saving – Have you thought about how much money your library can save you? Instead of paying a fortune to buy all the books on your course reading lists come and borrow them from us. We also pay for expensive subscriptions to journals, newspapers and full-text online databases and make them all available to you free of charge. Not to mention all the expert advice we are able to offer at no extra cost. So, next time you’re passing one of our libraries, why not pop in and save yourself a few quid at the same time?!
