Library Week 11th-15th November

The theme for Library week this year is 'Think Outside the Book'.
Yeats Library has currently nearly 50,000 books in stock but what if you can’t find the answers you want in a library book? Then why not think outside the book and take a look at the Library Website.
Try a Summon 2.0 search for article level searching of thousands of e-journals and e-books or check the A-Z Journals List for a journal title.
Explore other library services on offer like Interlending & Document Supply or book an Information Literacy Tutorial with a Librarian;  Request items from the Print Archive or Special Collections.
Check out the library Moodle page for access to online reading lists and advice and information on referencing, doing a dissertation or presentation.
