     The Library is offering another series of workshops to taught Science and Engineering students. These hands-on workshops will take place in the Training Room in the Mile End Library on Tuesday and Thursday Lunch time during 5 weeks. Every week there is a new theme, please make sure you book yourself on the session you really want attend. If you cannot make a workshop but still need help, email, and we can make other arrangements for support.


    Many of the skills addressed in the workshops are already covered during the embedded sessions with your Faculty Liaison Librarian. However, this is your chance to get a deeper understanding and review your previously acquired knowledge.

     Each workshop is open to 40 students from the whole of Science and Engineering.

     To avoid disappointments, book your place now:
