Our lovely librarians are running 2 workshops this week on popular topics:

  • On Monday at 1pm, there is a session on searching the literature for dissertation students. If you are writing a literature review or getting ready for your final year research project, this is a useful session for you.  Come along for some great tips on finding journal articles and other information sources for your research project.
  • On Tuesday at 1pm, we are running a session on using news sources. Some newspapers are available free online, but did you know that your university provides access to other news sources – including print and broadcast resources. This workshop is most useful for journalism students, but can be handy for anyone who might use news resources in their work.

These workshops are open to anyone – if you want to book, please email DHL-librarians@gre.ac.uk.

And finally, our colleagues in the Student Learning Advisory Service from the University of Kent are running some workshops on Wednesday to help people preparing for exams.

Lent. What are you giving up?

Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent.

There are traditionally 40 days in Lent; in modern times, observers of Lent give up something they enjoy, like chocolate or wine and often invest the time or money saved in charitable purposes or organisations. So what are you giving up?
