The return of the Warwick Library advent calendar

I’ve not had an advent calendar for several years now, mostly because my metabolism can’t cope with starting each morning in December with chocolate. That said, I’m not a Christmas Grinch; I enjoy the steady build-up to Christmas Day, and all the creative ways people count down the days, and Warwick Library joined in again this year with their advent calendar on social media!… By Dr David Richardson

Mastering Warwick as a Postgraduate

Starting life as a postgraduate is exciting, but it can also be extremely daunting. While as an undergrad you would be in the same boat as all your classmates for three years, navigating a difficult but well-mapped-out route, as a postgraduate it’s easy to feel like you’re in a lifeboat by yourself in the uncharted waters of academia. Thankfully, at the Library we offer a number of different recurring events and programmes and services for postgraduates to help make sure you don’t feel lost at sea (time to drop anchor on this tenuous naval metaphor)… by David Richardson Continue reading “Mastering Warwick as a Postgraduate”
