Welcome

Welcome to the Yeats Library.

We use various tools to support you and your students  - for your teaching and your research.

The library website is our base and is maintained by library staff.

Our online Library help desk includes technical faqs and tips.

Our Libguides are subject specific based on school programmes - feel free to link to them from your Moodle page.

Additional guides cover advice on Referencing, Research skills, Academic writing and Study skills.

The Yeats Library Moodle page is a mix of useful guides that have been shared by large academic libraries under creative commons. We also have a Panopto block with our recorded tutorials to help you become familiar with various aspect of our resources and services.

We regularly  upload in house recordings to our YouTube channel.

You will also find the archive of Past Exam Papers on the library website.

 

From one semester to the next our subscriptions, services and offerings may change depending on availability of funds and external factors in the world of publishing or national purchasing negotiations. In general we try to maintain a steady and consistent service with new innovations, now and again!
