As part of the transfer process of Martin and I splitting subject support on the 1st June we have discontinued the businesslibrarian@lincoln.ac.uk email. If anyone wants to contact us please email dmansfield@lincoln.ac.uk for Daren Mansfield or mosborne@lincoln.ac.uk for Martin Osborne. We continue to share our subject support until the transfer date when we take on separate subjects within the Business School.

An exciting new service for advice on academic writing has recently started in the Library with staff able to advise on a range of writing skills from grammar to structuring an assignment. Please email us at aws@lincoln.ac.uk to arrange a 1-1 appointment and bring along a draft assignment. To support this initiative there is a new libguide about the Academic Writing Support available at guides.library.lincoln.ac.uk/c.php?g=133466 complete  with informative tabs.  You can drop into any of our sessions in the Learning Development room at the end of the ground floor of the Library during the times listed below:

  • Monday – 11.00 – 13.00
  • Wednesday 13.00 – 15.00
  • Thursday 14.00 – 16.00

Running from left to right, our team consists of Judith Elkin, myself (Daren Mansfield) and Cheryl Cliffe.

I have added subtitles to the screencast video I recorded yesterday about report writing structure, which is a clever facility available on YouTube (select the CC icon once you play the video). I hope to record another screencast video on writing reports nearer the end of February. Please note that this video does not include a literature review, but the previous post does.
