Digital Session

This 40-minute lecture will focus on how to access research material online. We will advise your students on how to carry out more effective online searches, as well as introducing them to Open Access material, which will enable them to access research for free. Students will also learn how to analyse and reference online resources.

Please note, this session does not serve as an induction to the Bill Bryson Library for independent access.

To aid your students in this session, please find links to notes for the lecture below.

We also run sessions for classes of A Level students wishing to explore primary source material from Palace Green Library, the Oriental Museum, the Museum of Archaeology and the Art collection. We can offer a variety of sessions exploring a range of topics.
