From Thursday 7th December new users can now register with the Sconul Access scheme online at www.access.sconul.ac.uk.

University of Lincoln students and staff are encouraged to register online, however Sconul cards will continue to be issued at the Library desk if requested. Incoming users from other institutions will need to bring a Sconul Access email introduction letter or stamped/signed Sconul Access card from their home institution and library/ID card. If you fall into a category below then you will be able to use the scheme:

Band A – Staff and research students

Band B – Part time, distance learning and placement students

Band C – Taught postgraduates

R- Reference only – Full-time undergraduates

 

It was one of the Eureka! moments, when reading study skills books over the summer, I found simple formulas to write well-crafted essays.  These formulas can be employed to structure the skeleton of an essay. It may sound simplistic but you can build on it by weaving scholarly material into your assignment, and may be the secret of your academic success. These slides are uploaded from an essay writing workshop presented earlier today, referring in part, to Stephen Bailey’s brilliant Academic Writing for International Students of Business available at 808.06665 bai on the second floor of the GCW .

Introduction to Essay Writing

 

More Books is your chance to tell the Library what resources you need for your academic study.  More Books is an easy and straightforward way for you to influence what we buy.

We sometimes hear that there aren’t enough books in the library, but we need more specific information to act on.  Are there resources that you can’t get hold of because there aren’t enough copies on the shelf or it is missing?  Or is there a book on a module reading list that the library does not have?  Have you found a book you need for your dissertation but the library does not have it? If the answer is yes to any of these please tell us via More Books!

More Books includes a form for you to complete and gives us the details of the book and the reasons why you want us to buy.  From this information we can then purchase either the book or ebook and we will reply to you to tell you what we have done.

More Books is launched today (Monday the 13th January) and will run for a limited period only and so please make your requests as soon as possible.  It is only available to students and so will reflect your academic needs.
