CUL: Orientation tour for Undergraduates new Sat 19 Oct 2019   14:15   [More dates...] [Places]
  • Are you a new undergrad who is intimidated by the thought of entering the UL?
  • Are you a second or third year who has never set foot in the UL and is embarrassed to admit that you don't know what you're doing?
  • Have you been struggling on your own and just need a few tips and tricks to get what you need?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions then this tour is for you!

Finding the UL intimidating and confusing is perfectly normal. It is also normal for undergraduates to only use the UL for the first time in their third year, so you are definitely not alone!

On this tour a friendly member of our Reader Services team will show you around, explain the UL's unique way of shelving books, explain what Electronic Legal Deposit is and answer any questions you may have. Most importantly we will show you where to go if you find you need help.

Don't suffer in silence! Help is here!
