All next week, 27th-31st October, the afternoon Pop-up Library sessions are being taken over by the Library Academic Support team for Get the Best from the Library Week.
Get the Best from the Library Week is all about helping you find out more about how the Library can work for you at the University of Edinburgh. So why not pop up and meet us at the 1st floor, Main Library between 2-4pm every day next week.
During the Get the Best from the Library Week you can:
- Discover the full range of information resources available to you
- Find out about new resources purchased recently
- Get one-to-one support from a library specialist in your subject area
The Library Academic Support team provides support to staff and students for all matters relating to library services, so no matter what your question is, we aim to help.
You can find out what subject areas are being covered each afternoon from the Get the Best from the Library Week timetable.
Hope to see you there!

Academic Support Librarians
Come and meet members of the Library Academic Support team at the Pop up Library at 11am on Tuesday 8 September and find out more about the new Get Library Smart information skills resource. Newly developed from materials written for students by the Library Academic Support Team, this resource aims to help everyone at the University of Edinburgh get the best from the Library. As well as a toolkit to help you get your hands on the library materials you need, you’ll find step by step guides through the library experience of searching, discovering and managing information. What’s more, we’ll regularly be delivering bite-sized chunks in blog form to answer key questions and signpost you to what’s relevant for your subject. http://libraryblogs.is.ed.ac.uk/infoskills/
