  • LLR’s Digitisation Service

    Are your students all competing for the same book in the library?  Why not take advantage of LLR’s Digitisation Service which enables you to make key book chapters and journal articles available via the VLP (subject to copyright restrictions).

    Send your requests direct to lib.digitisation@ntu.ac.uk who will check the copyright compliance, or contact Ian and Heather for more information.

    In addition to the bibliographic details, we need to know the following information:

    • module name
    • module number
    • number of students enrolled on the module
    • the week, or at least the term, for which the text is required

    If you have any students who use screen readers, or require different formats, flag this up and we will provide a suitable format.

    LLR Training Events

    LLR are putting on a series of general training events for Staff and Students in all the Schools across all three campuses. These include sessions on using the new RefWorks bibliographic software, using ESearch to locate information in academic journals and other sources, as well as sessions looking at specific databases.The training events for November- January 08 are now available for booking via the LLR web pages, so please feel free to sign up for any of the events at any of the campuses and to encourage your students to sign up for sessions that they might find useful.

    Of course, if you or your students need training at a time and place more convenient to yourselves, just contact Heather or Ian and we will be happy to organise events just for you.

    LibQUAL Survey

    This is your opportunity to tell us what you think about the library services and help us identify areas for improvement.  We’d like to hear from staff and students, so please encourage your students to fill in the survey.  All students who enter will go into a prize draw to win an iPod touch and 3 runners up will receive £20 Amazon vouchers.  I’m afraid NTU staff are not eligble for the prize draw – you just get the satisfaction of helping us deliver a better service.  To complete the survey, log onto http://www.ntu.ac.uk/libqual
