There is a lot of information for new arrivals to take in during orientation week. When you have had a chance to catch your breath, come along to the Library any time when we are open – all the staff here will be happy to help you with anything related to our study facilities, information resources and information skills training.
To make sure that you can hit the ground running, you should attend our information skills classes in weeks 1 and 2. These classes are aimed at Masters level students, but anybody is welcome to attend. The classes are:
Session1: Using the Library & finding items on your reading list
