Or: “How do I get hold of the book I need??”
Is the book you want already out on loan? Does the Library not have the book or journal you need? What’s the Library Annexe? If you have questions like these, read on…
Over the next few weeks, the library Helpdesk will be running a series of Pop-up Library sessions called ‘Resources Plus’. The idea of these sessions is for us to give out advice and show you how to get hold of resources that are either already out on loan, at the Annexe, or the Library doesn’t own or subscribe to. For example, this might include how to use the Interlibrary Loan system, the Request a Book service, or place a request on a book that is currently out on loan. We can also advise on using the SCONUL access scheme to visit other University libraries; and tell you all you need to know about visiting the National Library of Scotland for the first time.
And much more besides!
So if you have any questions about things you want, but can’t get – or if you just want to find out more for future reference, we’ll be on the first floor of Main Library this Tuesday (7th October), 2-4pm, and 2-4pm on Tuesday 21st October. Pop Up and see us!
