Welcome to new students

Welcome to new students joining the University for Semester Two.

The Library opens 24/7 every day so you can study whenever suits you best. We offer both silent and group study spaces plus bookable Student Meeting Rooms so you can also choose the type of study space that suits your needs.

If you’ve brought a mobile device with you to University you’ll need to get it set up on the wireless network, eduroam, and you can also download Microsoft Student Advantage for free. If you don’t have a laptop you can borrow one for use in the Library.

Please take some time to explore our Library website as it is full of information about all our services and the thousands of resources available to you on and off-campus. We also have dedicated information pages for international students and students studying part-time. And MyBeckett provides access to your modules, reading lists, timetables, student email and much more. Take a look at the Get Started tab to do just that!

You should have a Library induction in the first few weeks of your course where you will meet your Academic Librarian and find out more about all the help available to you, such as your Subject Guide and our Skills for Learning workshops and resources.  But please just contact us if you have any questions at all.

We look forward to seeing you in the Library before long.

Headingley Library

We have two new book displays currently on show in the Library, showcasing the top 10 most issued books at each Library in 2016.

New in at number 1 at both Headingley and Sheila Silver Library is the ever popular Social Research Methods by Alan Bryman

 

The lists include a number of research books and key texts and reflect the different courses taught at the two campuses, although there are a number of titles that appear on both.

All of the books featured, are included in Resource (Reading) Lists on a number of courses. They are also provided as eBooks where an eBook is available.

Feel free to borrow one of the titles from the display – if you’ve not already done so!

 

 

 

 

Welcome to 2017!

Welcome back to the Library – we hope you had a wonderful Christmas break.

We know lots of you have exams in January but we’re here to help as much as we can – here’s a reminder of everything that is available – from silent study space to motivational playlists.

If you feel you’ve done enough revising and want to focus on a new resolution or find new things to do have a look at our Resolutions Pinterest Board.

And if you were lucky enough to receive a shiny new laptop or mobile don’t forget to connect it to Eduroam as soon as you’re back on campus and download Office 365.
