Over summer we’ve been reviewing our Library website and looking at ways to improve it. As a result, some pages will be changed today (including the home page). Whilst the pages are changed over, you might experience some disruption or difficulty loading a page. Please bear with us and just keep trying the pages as each page changeover should be brief.
We hope you like the new website – let us know what you think!
Due to some difficulties accessing JSTOR and BSOL, there will be a brief period of e-resource maintenance tomorrow morning (25 July) starting at 7:30am. You may experience some difficulties connecting to e-resources at this time, but everything should be back to normal by 9:00am. We apologise for any disruption.
Due to routine testing of electrics in the Bannerman Centre this weekend there may be short disruptions to services. Our call centre will be open from 11am today to allow for early morning testing, and as each area is tested there will be the potential for disrupted access to PCs, Self Service machines, Desk Services and any other powered service.
If you are working in the Library this weekend please listen for announcements about areas affected – each test should last for around 20 minutes.
Although the majority of students are away from campus, ASK are here all summer. We aren’t running regular drop-ins but if you’d like to meet with one of us please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an appointment. If you want to avoid the Olympic travel rush, or work at a distance, we can meet you on Skype too – our username is ‘ask.brunel’. Drop-ins and our regular workshop programme will start again in October.
When we aren’t meeting students, we’re working on developing new resources to support your studies.
