Skills For Study offers a range of modules to help develop all the skills you need to make your time at University a success. Modules include:
With so much archaeology going on around the university site at the moment, it’s a good time to find out more about some of the resources available to archaeologists in the CCCU Library, and who better to tell us than Dr Andy Seaman, Senior Lecturer in archaeology and Michelle Crowther, Learning and Research Librarian for Humanities.
Using #YourDigitalLibrary to explore the history of UK suffrage in light of the forthcoming general election
However you feel, whether passionate or uninterested, staunchly aligned or ambivalent about party manifestos, there is a general election coming on Thursday 12th December. Voter registration closes at midnight on Tuesday 26th November (tomorrow) and if you want your voice to be heard but you’re not yet registered you need to meet this deadline. Huge numbers of the British population don’t exercise their right to vote each general election. Many very understandably feel disillusioned, disregarded, and confused by the deluge of (often contradictory) information we are bombarded with every day about this country’s present state and the trajectory it should take. You may feel that your vote doesn’t count, that in the grand scheme of things it won’t change an inevitable outcome. But our city, Canterbury, is a perfect example of just how vital every vote is, and CCCU library’s online resources give us an insight into how essential it is that we engage in an exercise that we may take for granted today but that was in fact fought for tooth and nail.
Finding online journal articles just got easier: Part III – LibKey Nomad Google Chrome browser extension
What if I told you there was a way you could download a .pdf file of a journal article we are subscribed to from a reference in Wikipedia or PubMed or hundreds of other Scholarly Publisher Websites?
Remember that article you stumbled across that looked like it might have had the information you needed in your research…. but then you were distracted and now you actually can’t remember what it was called or where it was from?
Remember that your tutor mentioned that the best journal for your research was out monthly, but you’re so busy with your part-time work and your studies that you keep forgetting to check on new issues?
Remember when we introduced BrowZine? Well, BrowZine can help you with solutions to these and other issues by providing you with personalised bookshelves and the ability to save articles to your profile with a click of a button. And here’s how.
Sick of search boxes? Are you looking for a different way to find those e-journals and articles you need for your studies and research? Last year we launched a brand new way of discovering e-journals.
