In this post I’ve lined up some of the things to expect when returning to campus over the summer or in term one, and ways that you can make your grand return (…or grand entrance) to campus as easy as possible.

Talk to the Library – Thursday 4 March 2021 is #UniMentalHealthDay

E-books are educational, effective, easy-to-use (for the most part), expeditious – and are becoming increasingly essential for teaching and learning. But they can also be exorbitant, exasperating and are sometimes inexplicably unavailable at all. They infuriate librarians but we’d be at a loss without them, particularly in a pandemic.

It would be much better to be able to walk you through our library and welcome all of you in a warm embrace, but that is not possible right now. We need to be flexible, and not all of us can stay indoors studying away together at the library like we did before, but here are some options for study spaces on campus you can safely hang out at. Check it out!
