This is a collection of tutorials and guides on using the library effectively for engineering. It is important to use both the print and electronic resources available to you.
Note: Some of this content was originally developed to support the Malaysia Campus, but is equally useful for UK based students.
The Key Skills section of the Engineering LibGuide is worth looking at (they also includes supporting materials from sessions we run).
Exploring the library information on the web is a good first step. The following tutorials will help you make effective use of these resources.
These guides list some of the key resources, both free and available via the library.
Books are a key resource for your study. Online books or eBooks are also very useful - we have thousands, including some of the books on your reading list.
Finding and using journal articles is an important part of your studies - you may want to look up an article that is referenced in a reading list or book. Or you can search for articles on a specific topic - this is especially useful for projects and assignments.
