The New Year isn’t just about making resolutions for healthy living, it can also be a time to reflect on your academic “health” and ensure you keep on track. Have a look at this advice from Academic Librarian, Kirsty Bower.
Avoid any dissertation dilemmas by taking advantage of all the help available from the Library.
Leeds Beckett Academic Librarian Ellie Clement gives us her top ten tips for writing the perfect assignment.
Sheila Silver Library at City Campus and Headingley Library are open 24/7, 365 days a year and MyBeckett is where you’ll find your modules, assignments, reading lists, and email plus Library resources for your subject. There's a lot to take in during the first few weeks of university so we've put together a checklist to get you started.
We upgrade to a new version of MyBeckett every year to make sure it’s in the best shape possible to support you. But, we need time to complete the upgrade and to test the system and functionality so that MyBeckett is in full working order when it comes back online. The upgrade is carried out over the Summer to minimise disruption during the teaching year - this years upgrade means it should never need to be down for future maintenance!
