aesthetica online archives

Good news! Our subscription to Aesthetica arts magazine has been renewed.

The magazine has lots of great visual culture including photography, fashion, architecture and fine art. It comes out 4 times a year (‘quarterly’ in librarian-speak). Find it in the LRC on the journals stand.

You can also delve into the online archives any time through our library account. Browse the pictures to your heart’s content and see the world through artists’ eyes (always an interesting perspective!). Find the username and password on VLE under LRC –> eresources (then the eresources book).

Welcome to the Introduction to Science students who join us today for 5 weeks.

We will meet with your group this week to show you the many resources held by the Learning Resources Centre (LRC), how to use the library catalogue and give you membership cards.

Next week, we will demonstrate how you can benefit from the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) where you can access a number of eresources and ebooks to help with your studies.

If you would like to recommend useful apps or websites we are always happy to hear from you and if you require help accessing extra materials for chemistry, physics or biology, pop into the LRC and talk to one of the team.

LRC General Election displayThis week we’re looking at how to find out about your local candidates for the General Election.

You can use the Your Vote Matters Post code search box to find who the candidates are and where your local polling station is. You can also do this on the Who Can I Vote for website which gives you a handy map to find your polling station.

 

Follow Your Vote Matters on Twitter @YourVote_UK for daily facts on voting running up to and including election day Thursday 8 June. If you are still undecided about the candidates and their political parties take a look at Easy News‘s special General Election Manifesto Special Edition for June. You can download it from their website. We have a copy on display in the Learning Resources Centre.
