It’s Innovative Learning Week at the University of Edinburgh and both your SPS Librarians will be in the Main Library Foyer this morning at the Librarians Question Time event, 11.30-12.30. We’ll be there to answer your questions about library resources and services for Social & Political Sciences so come and say hello!
Innovative Learning Week is now less than a week away and Information Services have a number of events available for both staff and students. Some of the events require booking in advance so make sure you get your place.
