Over the summer we launched our brand new library management system: Discover More. Your new single search tool for all your print and electronic resources at Edge Hill University.
We know this will be a new experience for anyone joining Edge Hill this year, but if you’re a returning student it’s likely you’ll also notice some small changes. But rest assure these changes have brought about some great benefits!
You can now search for all your resources, be that books, eBooks or academic journals, in one handy location. With improved discoverability of your Library resources Discover More will ensure you’re able to access everything you need for your studies!
Hello and a massive welcome to all our new PGCE and PGDE students, we look forward to meeting you and getting to know you all this coming year. We are the Student Engagement team (you may also hear us referred to as the UniSkills team) and we are here to provide support with all aspects of your academic and information skills.
This summer get ready for your return to university in the autumn with your Student Advisors: Charlotte, Lauren, Darren, Callie and Maya. If you’re struggling to get organised then our Planning Ahead With Uniskills webinar will be perfect for you! They’re co-designed and delivered by students for students and are open to anyone wanting to develop their skills for the future and become experts at planning ahead.
You may have heard the term ‘accessibility‘ but do you know what it is and what it means for you? New regulations mean all public sector organisations have a legal duty to make sure their public facing websites, and internally shared content, meet accessibility requirements. Creating accessible content means you are ensuring it can be accessed and understood by as wide an audience as possible.
Do you struggle with referencing? Are you not sure of the difference between proofreading and editing? Then our fantastic Moving Forward With UniSkills webinars could be right up your street! They’re designed as a follow up to the Getting Started With UniSkills webinars that we ran earlier in the year, but if you didn’t attend those sessions, don’t worry you can still to come along to this one. They’re co-designed and co-delivered by your Student Advisors, myself (Lauren) and Charlotte and are useful for first year students who want to start developing their academic skills further or for anyone just wanting a refresher on the basics.
eBooks! Love them, hate them or never used them? What ever your level of experience we want your feedback!
One of our main services to you, as the University Library, is providing access to high-quality academic resources. Since the pandemic hit we’ve prioritised eBook purchases and we want to find out how they’re working for you. As part of this process we’d love to hear your experiences, as a student using them (or not!) at Edge Hill University, so we can continue to improve our services. Complete our very quick survey and you could even be in with a chance of winning a £20 Amazon eVoucher.
Wondering how to get going with your studies this term? How much do you know about Edge Hill’s academic skills support? Well, let me tell you all about why you need to join your Student Advisors all next week for Getting Started With UniSkills!
