What's new?

Here's a round-up of changes you may have missed over the past few months. As the academic year progresses, you can keep updated through our webpages and social media channels.

Helpdesk changes

The helpdesk in the Morrell (and our Virtual Help Desk service — email, chat, and phone) are now open from 10am-4pm. But there's still ways to get help at other times.

Campus East library services

The library services previously offered at Ron Cooke Hub, including the Book Drop and 24/7 Study Area, have moved to the Law & Sociology Building (formerly Law & Management) for the duration of the current refurbishment work on the Ron Cooke Hub.

Useful Reminders

As well as letting you know about any changes, we'd also like to remind you of some things you may have missed!

There's a range of study support and guidance available in the Library to boost your grades, help with your studies and generally make things easier.

As well as regular training sessions on a wealth of academic and digital skills, there's all the online resources here on our Subject Guides and Skills Guides.

You can also get one-to-one support:

  • Get help on literature searching and making the most of the Library and its resources by booking an appointment with the Faculty Librarians for your department — you can find their contact details on your Subject Guide.
  • The Writing Centre offers guidance on planning assignments, writing arguments, integrating sources, academic writing style, proofreading your own work and more.
  • The Maths Skills Centre offers advice and guidance on maths topics, statistical concepts and analysis, and preparing for numerical reasoning tests.
  • Our study coaching service let's you explore your current approach to academic life to help develop your study skills and strategies.
  • IT Support can help with a range of computer and software-related queries.
