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).
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.
We would urge you to use only trustworthy sources of information on the pandemic, as a lot of misleading information is available.
One of our librarians wrote a blog post about this: COVID-19 - seeking reliable information in difficult times. It was written for librarians, but we hope you may also find it useful.
Keep up to date with the info from your university and students union:
Lots of publishers have released all material relating to COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2 to the public. In some cases, this extends further to articles about infection control, past pandemics etc. Some of these: BMJ, Cambridge University Press, Elsevier, medRxiv (preprints), Nature, New England Journal of Medicine, Oxford University Press, Sage (medical, behavioural and social science), Taylor and Francis and Wiley.
We are still largely working from home. But we can still help you!
Please email email@example.com 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.
In addition to the support provided by your university, Medway students from all 3 universities can book online appointments with Clare Chambers. Clare is a Royal Literary Fellow and a published author, who can help with academic writing. To book an appointment, email firstname.lastname@example.org - appointments are available on Mondays and Tuesdays.
[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.]
These workshops are open to all Universities at Medway students and are run here at the Medway campus.
