National Libraries Day 2014

National Libraries Day is on Saturday 8th February, celebrating libraries and their important place in our community. Whether you use Goldsmiths Library as a study space, for our resources, help from the staff or as a place to chill out, we are sure you can appreciate it’s an essential part of university life. So why not celebrate with us this week? We’ve even put on an event or two…


Love your Library feedback

Throughout the week we’ll be asking you to tell us what you love about your library. Pop in and fill out a post-it note, stick it to the notice board and we’ll be tweeting some of our favourites on twitter at @goldsmithslib. National Libraries Day is only once a year so it’s a great opportunity for you to tell us what we get right. If you do love your library, don’t forget to let the National Student Survey know as well!


On Friday 7th February we’ll be running some short and sweet sessions between 12 – 2pm, teaching you some of the best tips and tricks we know to get the most out of the library. Each session is designed to be 5-10 minutes long, allowing you to drop by, ask questions and hopefully find out something new about the library that will help your studies.

The event is taking place in the ground floor social study space, which means you can even bring your lunch along to eat whilst we show you everything from renewing your books (and avoiding fines) to 5 things you didn’t know about the library website.

Our full session programme includes:

  •  Essays are coming… how to get the books you need
  • Catalogue search tips every student should know
  • How to renew your books (and avoid fines)
  • You shall not pass – changes to your e-resource login
  • 5 things you didn’t know about the library website
