We’re always looking at ways to innovate the Library at Lincoln. Our fantastic new project, The Library Dissertation Showcase, went live three weeks ago and has already attracted an amazing response from users. Our User Evaluation Survey aims to investigate how the site is performing and meeting your needs in reading some of the best dissertations in the Lincoln International Business School. It is a pilot so we would welcome your feedback at this stage (and in future, but it’s more than crucial right now!).
At the University of Lincoln we are proud to celebrate student success. All of the dissertations on this showcase achieved 75% or more. These are exclusively undergraduate dissertations from the Lincoln International Business School, and is running as a pilot to identify any issues and improve what promises to be a highly popular resource. Our longer aim (post-pilot) is to involve all other schools within the university and champion student achievement.
Talis Reading lists has upgraded to a ‘New List View’ today (ahem, Wednesday 16th January 2019). This is designed to improve usability for all users, which includes images of the front cover widely considered as the most obvious change. Here is an example of the ‘New List View’, if you would like to take a look:
Autumn is fast catching up with us and teaching is well underway. New business books have recently been shelved for the first time in the library. These may be of some interest to you, covering a good range of subjects. October promises to be a busy month for new books arriving in the GCW, so watch this space! Or posts…
Welcome to the University of Lincoln! Daren Mansfield and Martin Osborne are your Academic Subject Librarians (well, if you are studying Accountancy and Finance, Advertising and Marketing, Business and Management, Economics, Events Management, Fashion Management, International Business, Modern Languages, Sports Business Management, or Tourism). They are here to support you with your research and referencing throughout your studies. If you would like to see eithet one of them then go to the profile section of your subject guide and either email or ‘book an appointment‘.
On Wednesdays they run a drop-in session from 10-11.30 on the ground floor of the David Chiddick building to answer any questions you may have about the library.
Warc.com is, of course, the one-stop shop for advertising and marketing research which covers a vast range of data and information useful for all assignments. The database is found via library.lincoln.ac.uk > Find > Databases > W > Warc.com. Case studies are the most practical way of linking theory to practice. Theory, when treated in isolation, does not serve its true purpose without being tested in the real world. Warc.com is able to show you whether it does work or not.
In March 2018, the Library and Student Life put on a week of activities in the Freezone, including free massages, meditation, drop-ins with the Advice Service, Wellbeing, free herbal tea and fruit. Have a look at our video for more..
Acquiring report writing skills is such an important element of work and study. During the preparation for this library workshop I came across The University of Leicester’s Hate Crime Project and the Stephen Lawrence Inquiry, which are groundbreaking reports demonstrating how important they are in today’s society. Not only that, they are examples of best practice which we all hope to aspire to. No small task though.
This presentation is a compendium of various sources from Oxford Brookes University to University of Reading, et al.
CORE currently contains 125,700,569 open access articles, sourced from over tens of thousands of journals, collected from over 3,673 repositories around the world.
