Now the summer has arrived (or almost) it’s time for a refresh of the Business & Law Librarian blog. I hope you like it. I’ve gone with the blend of a metropolitan skyline at night (Brisbane, if you’re wondering) and of course, a library-themed background. Studying for the future leitmotif. I like it as it looks fresh and colourful (well, I would say that as I designed it!)

Owing to student demand for a more flexible service, Martin and I are splitting the Wednesday morning drop-in service to one-hour slots from 10-11 every Wednesday and Thursday mornings (the original drop-in session was 9.30-11.30 on Wednesdays). They will still take place on the ground floor of the Business & Law building near the Book & Latte cafe, but with me leading the Wednesday session, and Martin the Thursday session.

  • New entry gates which will make access a lot easier;
  • New improved thin client PCs with updated software and much better processing power so they can handle video at full screen;
  • Twelve replacement Macs;
  • Increased budget – additional £30k for Reading List books;
  • More 24/7 opening – starting 5th October;
  • A better organised and more up-to-date stock (thanks to extensive weeding and stock moves);
  • Permanent display case on the Ground Floor – coming soon ‘Steampunks’;
  • Online 3D Maps – currently under development;
  • Better water fountain on the Ground Floor (+ possibility of water on upper floors too);
  • Office 2016  (the mac version of 365) has already been rolled out to the Macs on the 1st floor;
  • More ‘user friendly’ Eating and Drinking policy.

Although this message was originally posted in March this year, I thought it was important to re-announce that from 1st June 2015 subject support for the Business School will be split along the following lines:

CaptureDarenPoster14

Daren will support…Accountancy and Finance, Advertising and Marketing, Economics, Events Management, International Business, Languages, Tourism, Lincoln College.

Martin O

Martin will support…Business, Business & Management, Management, MBA, Professional Development, North Lindsey College .

Our (amicable) separation is not divorce though, as both Daren and Martin will continue to work closely together as we remain part-time and unable to cover the week individually. A range of libguides will shortly be published to support these various subjects.

Just to let you know that our More Books service for undergraduate students will be closing on the 15th May, so if you want a book to be added to the library collection please submit your request before this deadline. More Books for Research will remain open for postgraduate students and researchers and is available at http://lncn.eu/pu57.

The More Books service for undergraduates will return in the Autumn.

More Books is back! The Library wants to know what resources you can’t get hold of! Let us know and we’ll buy more books and e-books.
Select the appropriate ‘More Books’ option (Undergraduate or Research) and complete the form with details of what you need on http://library.lincoln.ac.uk/home/more-books/ . We’ll get in touch with you if we need any additional information. Most books will be supplied within 4 weeks and we’ll reserve the book for you when it arrives.

For anyone studying management and / or HRM Bottom Line: Mental Health’s excellent programme on mental health in the workplace would provide insightful listening. Adroitly chaired by Evan Davies with guests Lord Stevenson of Coddenham, (entrepreneur and former Chairman of HBOS and Pearson), Andrea Woodside (Founder, Minding Work Limited) and Charlie Mowat (Managing Director, The Clean Space) who openly discuss their experience of dealing with severe mental health issues whilst running their companies, I found the discussion very interesting and thought-provoking.

Broadcast last week, Bottom Line: Mental Health is available at: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b048034w
