Education: Library essentials

A collection of information resources and guidance for Education students

Introduction - what is the Library Essentials dashboard?

We know students are short on time and when the going gets tough, learning new stuff about the library is one of the first things to get shelved for another day (or week, or lifetime).

Yellow post it note with red exclamation mark drawn on it.

On this page, we've gathered together the most essential and important information you'll need to know about us to get through your degree.

These videos and instructions are short and to the point, but you can use the other tabs in this guide to explore our services in more detail whenever you like.


Colourful headphonesHelp and advice from your librarian

Following government advice, the universities have asked all staff to work from home.  But we can still help you!

Please email with your queries. Or Tweet the Drill Hall - @drillhalllib. Or contact us via Facebook. We will try to answer your query by email/Twitter/Facebook, but we can also offer online tutorials, which will allow you to share your screen with us.

We will cover enquiries as a team and we are very keen to help you.

[Face to face workshops have temporarily been cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will run workshops again as soon as the universities resume face-to-face teaching.]
