We are looking forward to providing a warm welcome to new (and returning!) students and week commencing 22nd September will see the return of our successful Get Connected activities in the University library and Hub.

Last year we welcomed 353 students for tours at the University library and just over 1,000 students came to see us and asked questions at the Get Connected stand in the Hub. The activities are a great way for our staff to meet new students and take the help and support to where they need it.

From 22nd – 26th September our Get Connected stand will be in the Hub everyday 11.00am – 3.00pm to help students with:

  • Connecting to WiFi
  • Accessing Learning Edge
  • Finding reading lists
  • Finding out about library facilities and learning spaces on campus
  • Where to access help and support
  • Using course resources

We have some fantastic freebies to give away including a cotton bag which helps promote our twitter handle @EHULearnService – this is one of the newest ways that students like to connect with us.

This same week there are also student led library tours everyday 11.00am – 2.00pm in the University library.  The library tours are every half hour (last tour at 1.30pm).

Please encourage your students to come along!
