09 October 2017
Celebrate libraries with us and win prizes!
This week is the first ever national Libraries Week, showcasing of all the creative, innovative and diverse activities that UK libraries have to offer and generally showing off how awesome libraries are. We want to use this opportunity to continue welcoming all our new students and returning students and to tell you about all the different ways we in the library can help you while you are studying at Anglia Ruskin University.
If you visit one of our libraries in Cambridge, Chelmsford or Peterborough between Monday to Friday this week and find one of our special prize vouchers that have been hidden around the library you can claim a prize from the library Help Desk!
The theme for Libraries Week is discovery so we want to help you discover (or rediscover) the ways your library can help you make the most of your studying and get better grades, for example:
- What better way to start than taking a look at our guide to searching for books and online resources at: https://anglia.libguides.com/searchfaqs or taking a look at your Subject Guide and finding out which resources your Subject Librarian recommends: https://libweb.anglia.ac.uk/about/libguides.html
- Have you seen our Harvard Referencing Guide? https://libweb.anglia.ac.uk/referencing/harvard.htm It’s like your very own referencing first-aid kit and it’s always there 24/7 to help you out exactly when you need it.
- If you need a space to study don’t forget you can book a space here: https://libweb.anglia.ac.uk/services/roombooking.htm
- Finally – if you just need the answer to your library and student IT queries you can take a look at our FAQs here: http://libanswers.anglia.ac.uk or find contact details for getting in touch if you need further assistance!
There is so much to discover in your library - this is just the start! Don’t forget to look out for the prize vouchers hidden round the library this week – find a voucher, win a prize!
