resources-week-2kuje1d

Just a couple of weeks to go before LLS Resources Week takes place on both of our campuses.

This event is for everyone to enjoy and will include resource demonstrations from providers such as Sage, Taylor & Francis and Mintel, as well as supplier stands, competitions and free donuts (look out for Donuts & Digital Resources on the Tuesday).

Please come along and join in, encourage colleagues and students to sign up to some of the sessions and find out what digital resources are available to help them with their research.

There are timetables for both campuses – just follow the links within the timetables to book on any of the sessions that interest you. Whether you are a staff member, a student or a researcher, there really is something for everyone!
