The University will be holding Open Days on Friday 29th June and Saturday 30th June. Visitors, students and staff should be aware that campus, and in particular the Library, will likely be extremely busy on both days.
As usual the Library will be hosting several displays and stands by other support services within the University on both days, and they will be taking up temporary residence later this week on Level 3. As such, certain study areas on this level will be unavailable during this time and will be cordoned off from public use.
If you’re on campus next week, why not visit our ‘Digital Tools for Learning’ stands in the Library, James France and the Student’s Union between 12-2pm. Come and tell us what your favourite digital tool is and give us feedback about your experience with Learn – don’t forget to grab a freebie from us too! Below are the details of the dates and locations for the Digital Tools for Learning stands:
- Monday 23rd – Library
- Tuesday 24th – Students Union
- Wednesday 25th – Library
- Thursday 26th – James France
- Friday 27th – Library
If you can’t make it to any of the stands, you can still contribute by answering a simple question here about your favourite online resources.

It’s that time of the year again! But don’t panic – there are a wide range of resources available on campus to help you through the stresses and strains of the exam period, ranging from a wide variety of study spaces (that’s right, not just us!), IT help and personal and medical advice if things are getting on top of you. Visit the University’s one-stop exam support page here – http://www.lboro.ac.uk/internal/news/2018/january/exam-support.html – for more info.
The Library may seem like hub of all exam activity on campus, but there are a variety of other study facilities and support hubs student can fall back on during the exam period. To that effect, the University have created a simple one-stop shop web site detailing all the study support and learning facilities available right now on campus, ranging from study spaces and computer labs to personal support should things start to get on top of you.
