Improve your library search skills with our LibSmart series 1 and 2!

The Academic Support Librarian team and colleagues across the Library services have produced a series of modules which students can work through at their own pace, via our VLE (virtual learning environment), Learn. LibSmart 1 launched last September and helped many new students learn how to navigate to, and make the most of, the library resources available to them.
Now for 2021/22 we have launched LibSmart 2, which features new modules on specific subjects, such as ‘Finding and using digital images’, ‘Digital primary sources and digital scholarship’, and ‘Special Collections fundamentals’.
You can access more information about the LibSmart 1 and 2 modules here:
