The Library Services Spotlight: How can we help you?
Welcome to the Student Support Services spotlight series! In this series, we will introduce you to all our of Student Support Services and let you know how we can offer you support during your studies at Loughborough University London.
In this blog, meet our Librarian and the Library resources available to our students.
The London Library service is run by Laura Newman, the Librarian – you should be meeting Laura as part of your induction process, and during your modules. Laura is available by email (L.Newman@lboro.ac.uk), phone (02038051353) or by appointment on Microsoft Teams until we resume in-person fully.
Laura can help you with accessing appropriate resources, undertaking research, critically evaluating information to pick the best sources, and referencing. If you would like support with any of this, then please do get in touch with Laura.
The majority of Library resources are available online through the library catalogue – this is basically a search engine: vufind.lboro.ac.uk. You can find ebooks, journals, journal articles, newspapers and much more on this. You will need to be logged onto the VPN and have authenticated via Duo to access eresources off campus.
It’s important that for all of your assignments you use good quality and relevant information as evidence to support your arguments, and to make sure you get high marks – finding information through the Library is a good place to start. As well as the catalogue, it’s a good idea to look at the subject guides to find the resources most suited to your particular course: https://www.lboro.ac.uk/library/subject-guides/.
The physical library space is currently open on the London campus on the second floor, and if you have any enquiries you can ask at the IT services desk if it is open, or contact Laura. You can borrow and return books using your student ID card on the self-service machine in the Library. If you have any issues or need assistance with anything, please email Londonfirstname.lastname@example.org.
