Using a university library can be overwhelming, especially if this is your first session of study. To help you out and guide you through the tidal waves of information overload that often come with studying at uni, we’ve created a series of short modules to get you started.

So what are they and how can they help?

Each module takes about 10 minutes to complete, and there are 10 modules in total – perfect for those that don’t have a lot of time to spare! Feel free to cover as many modules as you like, or just the areas where you feel you might need a bit of a leg up. The modules covered are:

  • Before you start
  • Find your readings
  • Find your library guides
  • Preparing for your first assessment
  • Finding the information you need
  • Evaluate your resources
  • Writing up your assessment
  • First assessment feedback
  • Extend your skills
  • Test your knowledge

Each module is made up of short videos, interactive quizzes and activities, as well as links to our library specific resources and tools. They are sure to be useful, even if you just want to know a bit more about using our resources effectively!
