UniSkills Focus On: Reading Lists Online and Discover More

Hello, and welcome to the first in our brand-new student blog series UniSkills Focus On exploring key resources for your studies! Over the coming year we will publish a new blog on the last Friday of the month (a bit like a payday bonus!). Each blog will focus on a different resource, or selection of resources, designed to help you maximise your reading and research skills!

In each blog we will look at:

  • The benefits of the resource
  • How to find and access the resource
  • How you can get the most out of using the resource
  • Signpost to further help and support

This month UniSkills will focus on your Reading Lists Online and Discover More.
