Things to remember over Christmas….including our University Library opening times






As semester 1 comes to a close and the holidays are upon us, there a couple of things Learning Services would like to help you with.

We are aware it’s the exam period in January and also those of you undertaking a dissertation – the next few weeks might be when you have some free time.  Learning Services is here to help – if you need some quiet study time, the University Library will be open Thursday 27th and Friday 28th December 2012 from 9.00am – 5.00pm.  You can come in and see us, find resources, get some help, use a PC, bring your books back and take out some more…

You will also be able to ring our telephone support line during the 27th and 28th.  Staff will be available 9.00am – 5.00pm on 01695 584286.

Of course you don’t have to come in to use our excellent resources.  All our eResources will be available, so you can access these 24/7:

  • 75,000 eBooks
  • 17,000 eJournals
  • specialist subject web pages to sign post you to the right resources for your subject

And if your Christmas break is all about rest and recuperation, you can always read our most recent newsletter.  There are updates from our faculty teams, including new projects and collaboration, information about our new website and the new Edge Hill app – Edge Hill Central.
