clock

 

The library will be opening 24/5 from 4 March – 30 March and 22 April – 11 May (to cover the revision period).

This means that from noon on Sunday until 10pm on Friday the Library will be open continuously to give you more time to study, use resources or just find a quiet place to take some time out.

 

 

Request TV and radio programmes from BoB

Box of Broadcasts is a shared off-air recording and media archive service where subscribers (the University of Lincoln is this case) can record forthcoming television and radio programmes as well as retrieving programmes from the previous week.

You can set up an account to request programmes and create clips to embed into Blackboard. Logging into the site on the Portal is slightly unusual – for details see Paul Stainthorp’s blog post:

New University Library Opening Times Pilot!

The closing times remain the same, and so do desk services during the week, however at weekends the desk will open at 9.15.
