Be Afraid!




Simply the Best

Library staff are making their way round classes to talk about the importance of using the best information for your assignments.  We want students to use information you can trust.

No fake news for Into Manchester students!

So make sure you have your Open Athens password to get into the Ebsco Discovery databases…..

Get this password from your library staff, LRC on the 2nd Floor.

Welcome! Hello! Hiya!


And so we begin our new term.

The warmest welcome to all our new students. This is  our favourite time of the year as we get to meet you all.

If you are feeling lost, puzzled, a bit lonely, cold (!),  or  simply want to tell us about your home country as you settle in, please come and make  yourself known to us here in the Learning Centre on the 2nd Floor.

We have information on interesting places to visit in Manchester-  plus magazines, nespapers, DVDS – and all the textbooks you will need to succeed.

Come and say hello!

Eid Greetings

Eid Mubarak to any students celebrating Eid al-Adha (Id ul-Adha).  Enjoy your day- we have chocolates to share in the Learning Centre on Friday 1st September.

Summer Book Reviews

Over the summer months of July and August, sitting outside in the warm British weather (!), a prefect time to sit and read……

We are asking students to share your thoughts about the book you have read in our special Summer Book Review Challenge.

Students are asked to fill in details of  your favourite book and then explain why they like it on our special sheets.  There will be a prize (a book token) at the end of summer for the “best” review  and all students who produce 3 or more reviews,  will get an INTO Manchester Book Reviewer Certificate.

Book reviews will be put on our Book Review board in the library for other students to read so you can share your favourites.

And if you want to make a video to “speak” your views- even better! Just ask the library staff how to do this!
