Art Exposed

A chance to experience rarely seen paintings and objects from the University’s Art CollectionArt Exposed

Recently we learned that the most searched for term on our brand new Art Collections website was ‘Male Nude’ – we’ve decided to go with the assumption that it’s all the Classics students taking their studies very seriously indeed…

But, in honour of all you weirdos out there, we’re giving you the chance to get up close and personal to the slightly racier side of the University’s Art Collection.

Anna and Jill will be around to talk to you about the items on view, how you can access the artworks yourselves, and also let you know about some of the brilliant volunteering opportunities available to anyone interested in curatorial or wider museum work.

So come along to the Art Collections Library Pop session between 10 and 12 tomorrow, in the 1st Floor reception of the Main Library.

We do an amazing amount of stuff in the Library and Information Services. The Pop up Library will give you  the chance to ask questions and  find out more about our services and collections and how we can support your learning and research.

Find out about the Library’s new Exam Papers Online service, What do you do if you can’t find a book in the Library? Pop up Library sessions focusing on Resources Plus will tell you what your options are. There will be opportunities to see up close art work and objects from the University’s world class collections. What is Searcher? How can you use it to find stuff on your reading list? Pop up… ask us!!

The full schedule of Pop up Library sessions is now available. There’s two sessions each day at 10-12pm and 2-4pm. Please keep an eye on this page as the schedule may be subject to change.

Pop up Library

We’re taking over and making over a currently empty area in the Main Library to create a space which gives teams from across Information Services the chance to engage with Library users to promote their services in a fun and informal way and to gather some feedback.

The Pop up Library will run 8th September- 7th November using the currently vacant Main Library 1st floor reception desk.
This is what it looks like at the moment:
ML reception desk

We are planning to use the space to hold two Pop Up sessions per day: one morning (10-12pm) and one afternoon (2-4pm).

Sessions will focus on a wide range of topics from across the Library and Information services.

Keep an eye on the Pop Up Library blog to find out what’s happening. You don’t need to make an appointment – just pop over and see what’s happening and have a chat or ask a question.

To give you an idea, there will be sessions on existing services such as, Searcher, Learn and Pebblepad.

Other sessions will focus on Special Collections with the chance for library users to see rare objects up close. Others will give you the opportunity to ask about new services such as Resources Plus, which describes the various options available to users when they can’t find what they want in the Library.

Academic Support Librarians will offer specialised consultancy sessions and Library users will also get a chance to address questions and queries to senior management who will be making themselves available at various points throughout the trial period.

We’re using the Pop up Library blog and #librarypop to promote sessions and are encouraging Library users to tweet about sessions and to leave feedback on the feedback wall- which we’ll be putting up next to the desk- soon.
