UoM Library Update: Get Started, Books on Demand and My Learning Essentials

Library Update: Get Started and make the most of your Library Service

Get Started
A warm welcome to all new PGR students, we hope you have managed to be introduced  to your Library either at the various University fairs, at your Library Welcome presentation or by visiting your nearest library site. Whether you are new or returning and in need of a Library refresher use our Get Started Guide packed with information and videos to help you find your way around and use the Library effectively.

Library Subject Guides: 
The Library’s online subject guides provide a great starting point for identifying and searching relevant resources for your subject area or researching a specific topic/theme. Each guide provides details of how to find  key databases for a specific area plus guidance on  referencing, keeping up to date with research and evaluating external sources of information

My Learning Essentials
Critical reading, Essential research skills, an Introduction to Mendeley/Endnote and Presenting with confidence are just a few of the many workshops running throughout November. Have a look at our extensive training calendar and online resources.  Alternatively if you have a specific query come along to one of our drop-in sessions and speak to a member of staff.

Books on demand: If you need it, we’ll buy it!
We understand your frustration when you can’t get your hands on the books you need for your research. So we have introduced a pilot scheme giving you the opportunity to recommend texts and we’ll buy a brand new copy. This is a *limited* offer in the first instance to help ensure we have even more of the books that you need. To give you more choice and flexibility as to how you like to read, we are buying both print and eBooks. For further information see:
