As the New College Librarian, my role is to help students get the most out of using the Library. Freshers Week is a good opportunity to take a little time to get to know the Library – do this now and you’ll be paid back later on in your studies.
Here’s my top three tips for Undergraduate Freshers:
1. Come to the Library
- Bring your University card to get into New College Library
- From next week the Library is open 9am-6pm-10 Mon-Thurs, 9am-5pm Fridays, 12noon – 5pm on Saturdays. Remember that you can also use the Main Library which is open longer at weekends
2. Take a tour
- Library tours are running in Week 1 on 16, 18 and 19 September – just turn up
- You should have received a New College Library Guide leaflet in your welcome pack – it’s also available online.
3. Check out what’s online
- The online catalogue is your key to finding what’s in the Library
- Explore specialist resources for Divinity in the Divinity Subject Guide
