We arrived in the library on Monday morning to discover that the festive elves had been in over the weekend and put up a Christmas tree just outside the library’s main entrance! I know that lots of you will have assignments to complete in December so it’s a good idea to request any books you need from the library as early as possible as your postman is very busy in December! We have created a handy video guide that explains how to request books by mail or please do contact the Offsite team directly if you need any help with this.
I know that some of you come to Leeds as part of your course and that others conduct all of your studies remotely. If you ever get the chance to come to the city, please do come and say hello to the Offsite team, we are always keen to meet our students in person! We are based in room 405 in the Sheila Silver City Campus Library. It has been a busy few weeks in Leeds, the 29th Leeds International Film Festival is drawing to a close, it is held at venues across the city and features films from across the globe, the best film award will be announced shortly and I would definitely recommend checking out the winner! This week sees the university’s annual Festival of Politics and Applied Global Ethics, this event also has its own blog so you can find out a bit more about it here. Things are starting to get festive in our city, the Leeds Christkindelmarkt has just opened a couple of minutes walk away from the university in Millenium Square and it is a firm favourite with library staff and a great place to get a pick up a mulled wine and some Christmas gifts too! We will be blogging over the next few weeks with a countdown to Christmas and some of our best tips to ensure that you get the most out of using the library and our resources over the festive season.
Please do get in touch if you have any questions in the meantime.
Now is the time of year that many of you will be writing your first assignments so this is a good opportunity for us wish you all the best of luck and to remind you that you are not alone and that we are here to help! Please get in touch with Offsite if you are struggling to find information for your assignment, we can help you to search and direct you to relevant resources. Our Learning Systems Team have also put together a really useful MyBeckett Assignment Survival Guide full of tips to ensure that your work is submitted successfully and their student help pages contain lots of useful information about navigating your way around MyBeckett. Our Skills for Learning pages are also a valuable resource as they contain information about academic writing, time management and a whole host of other useful topics that will help you successfully complete your assignment. We are looking forward to hearing from you and wish you the best of luck.
