This week the Student Union is running its Your Education Week initiative across campus. Teams of programme presidents and representatives will be out and about across campus helping students find out how to improve their learning style and get more out of their studies.

The Library will be supporting the initiative by hosting a stall in the foyer on Tuesday 29th November between 12pm-4pm, but you can also find a wealth of information about how to improve your studying and academic practice via our online help resources. Two in particular are especially useful – we have our own Study Tips module on Learn at http://learn.lboro.ac.uk/course/view.php?id=11494 , and also the Learning Support web pages which you can find at  http://www.lboro.ac.uk/services/library/students/learningsupport/
