Do you have 2020 vision? For the adventurous and no doubt supremely organised, why not book in advance? We have appointments available for the first three weeks of the year. More to follow!
We’re back in 2020. If, as a @UoLBusiness student, you want to plan ahead and book a 1-1 appointment with me https://t.co/8aM5J2NtzZ or Martin https://t.co/3k7y31fTzo to discuss research and referencing in then we as @GCWLibrarians are happy to see you @GCWLibrary pic.twitter.com/Qc20piQKKL

It’s certainly been a hectic year – our new bookable appointments have been an enormous success with all but a couple of slots fully booked up. It’s been a real pleasure to meet with so many business school students throughout the year and we look forward to seeing everyone in the New Year.
Martin and I (me, Daren) @UoLBusiness @GCWLibrarians wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. We are looking forward to support students in 2020 after the festive break. pic.twitter.com/77KVdSXuju

It’s raining outside. Take shelter in the Library and check out our new books. The new academic year is fully underway, and @GCWLibrarians are busy buying new titles, new editions, et al. (us included). Martin and I have compiled a fascinating new library book list which lets you know what has arrived in the Library over the past week…Here @ bit.ly/2IGtNLW.
The list includes Simon Lindgren’s (2017) splendid Digital media & society which covers new analysis of the contemporary media landscape, and central theories of the digital society, and the hot topics and key research methods in the field. Plus much more. Sounds interesting? It’s available now @ bit.ly/2oSgwbr
It’s finally here. Ten new (2019) outstanding Lincoln International Business School dissertations have been added to the Library Dissertation Showcase. These are part of a pilot where we’re learning all the time to improve what is proving to be an excellent resource for University of Lincoln students. At the moment these are undergraduates dissertations, but there may be scope to include postgraduate dissertations further down the line; as well as adding other schools to upload their top ten dissertations. More to follow soon. Will keep you posted on developments in this exciting area.
I am delighted to announce that Martin Osborne and I (Daren Mansfield) will be supporting Human Resource Management from September onwards. As a direct result, the libguide for this subject has been updated to include ourselves as the main contacts for research and referencing. Please contact us for 1-1 support, enquiries and anything else library related.
The RNIB bookshare provides the reader with the opportunity to:
- Listen to books with high quality text-to-speech voices
- Hear and see highlighted words on screen
- Read with digital braille or enlarged fonts
- Create physical braille or large print
- Read directly from your Internet browser
- And more!
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!).
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.
These new books have recently arrived in the Library for the Lincoln International Business School, and there’s always an eye-catching title that inspires further reading. This week it is Scheinbaum & Close’s (eds.) (2018) The dark side of social media: a consumer psychology perspective. What one would you choose?

Did you get snow this morning? I did, so why not choose one of our many Lincoln International Business School books in the Library this wintry February, and beat the winter blues.
