At the University of Lincoln we are fortunate enough to use Talis reading lists which links books in our collection to specific modules, enabling students to easily identify where print books are located in the library as well as giving them access to journal articles and ebooks off campus. Likewise, on this blog I like to showcase the past three months’ worth of newly acquired books that support the Business School. This interactive reading list is updated every week to illustrate what new titles and additional copies are available in the Library, so it’s worth checking the Business Librarian blog regularly.
Josh Zhang has recently started at the Library as the International Coordinator having completed an MSc Computing Science at the University. His first job will be to identify the library needs of international students in order to enhance our services and strengthen our library community.
