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. Their mission is to aggregate all open access research outputs from repositories and journals worldwide and make them available to the public, enabling free unrestricted access to research for all.

We have recently acquired EBook Central, which is a vast collection of electronic books that significantly boosts our business library provision. It is easy to use and indeed, colourful – you are able to limit your results by selecting the left-hand side of the page, including by author. Please provide us with some feedback about this new acquisition.
We’re delighted to announce a new eBook platform called EBook Central, which provides a huge range of electronically available books. To prove this point, I searched for ‘marketing communications’ and received over forty thousand results. On the left-hand side of the screen you will be able to select a date range, subject area, or a report.
To find this database, all you need to do is to go to the Library website > Find > Databases > E > Ebook Central. Please provide us with your feedback.
We are delighted to announce a new accessible-friendly eBook platform, Bibliotech, which is available via the Library website > Find > Databases > B > Bibliotech. At the moment it includes several study skills eBooks which you are welcome to download, and in the near future we hope to expand this collection to cover high-demand books, some of which have not been available as electronic versions before. This is a major step forward in being able to deliver our most popular print titles in an electronic format, and eliminating the stress of waiting in a queue for a highly-prized core text book that it is always on loan.
We have a new wonderful facility where anyone (well, anyone with electronic access to the University Library) is able to browse an enormous range of journals, categorised under subject headings. One of the things we like is the colourful graphics that tempts the user to explore a diverse range of subjects.
All you need to do is go to the Library website > Find > Browse Electronic Journals and select a subject area, which would probably be Business and Economics but of course, you are free to access any of the other areas. We hope you like it. We do.
Are you a Lincoln International Business School student and want to discuss your research with your subject librarian in the Library? Fortunately, we have set up loads of 30 minute appointments to maximise the number of students we can see – just select ‘make an appointment’. I’m sorry for any delay in setting my calendar up, but it’s been a hectic semester with forty
hours of teaching already delivered!
There’s loads of mini workshops taking place in the Library this week, please take a look at our Upcoming Events section on the Library Website. No need to book, just arrive promptly as these sessions will only last a maximum of 15 minutes.
