Hi there! Welcome to Leeds Trinity if you have started here as a new student recently – and welcome back to all those returning from summer breaks. We are really looking forward to seeing you lovely bunch in the Library and helping you on your way to being brilliant!
We hope you’ve all had a great summer and are feeling ready to start the new academic year. If not, don’t worry – university can be daunting and staying motivated is a struggle at times, but we will do our best to help you get to grips with the Library and ultimately help you get better marks.
We’ve had a very busy summer here in the Library and for those returning students, you may notice a few changes about the place… the biggest & most important improvement is our brand new extension, which was officially opened in September! The extension includes state-of-the-art teaching rooms, new group study rooms (meaning we now have 17 in total), a wealth of informal study areas, as well as a new and improved café for you to get your morning caffeine fix. We hope you’ve already been in and experienced the benefits for yourself but if not we hope to see you soon. We are so excited about this fantastic new space! It’s been a long process to get to this point, and we thank you for your patience throughout any disruption – but we really hope you’ll agree – the end results are worth it!
In other news…
Following our successful trial of 24 hour opening last year, we’re pleased to be able to offer it again, at key times – see our opening hours pages on the Library website for further details!
We’ve been busy making some other changes behind the scenes too – look out for our Request service, an easy way to tell us if you need any additional resources. If you can’t get hold of a book, journal or other resource, or you’d like to make a recommendation, complete the form online. The Library team will try to make the resources available by purchasing them for the Library or borrowing them from another library.
We’ve also improved our website, making our home page simpler and more intuitive, as well as streamlining our search boxes. Additionally, you’ll find the catalogue easier to search now as we have improved the way search results display, meaning that search terms are highlighted in the detailed record, making it easier for you to identify relevant content.
And last (but not least!) you can now loan our DVDs for 2 weeks – plenty of time to binge-watch that boxset!
As always, if you need any help or support with accessing any library resources then please feel free to pop in, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, call us on 0113 783244 or follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay in touch. We know starting a new course or module can be daunting but we are here to help you Be Brilliant!
