Shakespeare’s Birthday Book Bash in the Learning Centre


Happy Birthday Shakespeare!

We’re holding a BOOK SALE in the Learning Centre, starting on Monday, 23rd April, to mark Shakespeare’s birthday.  Shakespeare himself will be presiding over the occasion so you can take selfies with him.

For anyone that doesn’t know, William Shakespeare is considered one of the greatest writers to ever use the English language.

Books will be sold at a minimum of £1.00 each – and all funds will go straight to INTO Giving,  a charity that supports children’s education and teachers across the globe.

So Thank You in advance for your generous contributions!

Please feel free to bring in any books to add to the sale. Any books in good condition – fiction, non-fiction, any subject – will be welcomed

Want to stop using Wikipedia? Seeking more relevant sources?

Calling all January humanities students:

Looking for relevant, reputable sources for your assignments/course work?

Learning Centre staff will be in room 117, every Wednesday, 12.15pm to 1pm, to show you how to use The Review magazines. Great for your politics/economics and business assignments.

No need to book, just show up!

All Change!

Welcome back! Studying hard after the Bank Holidays?

You may notice some changes after the holidays- one of our E-books (electronic/online) book collections has changed to Ebook Central from Myilibrary.

Don’t worry, we’ve spent all Easter writing some new instructions on how to use it…..any problems ask Learning Centre staff.

Also, your Moodle may look a bit different: don’t panic, all the information should still be there!
