We’ve recently been contacted by alumni student Morgan Williams of the University of Gloucestershire, who currently works at gocompare.com.

The job description is attached providing a loose guide of requirements for the role. The ideal candidate would have strong contemporary web design skills and as a bonus the ability to prototype. The successful candidate will work alongside an excellent senior designer who will be able to guide and mentor a graduate.

If you haven’t seen it already a new A0 large scale poster printer was purchased and installed in the Park Library reception area in November. If you have any group work to do and would like to produce some good quality posters then why not try the new printer.

It is connected to any of the PCs or Macs in the library reception area. If you would like to use it ask library staff at the service desk for more information.

New Library Books Update

Book update
To give you a broad idea on what we’ve purchased since May 2013 the Library has ordered

  • over 140 new print titles not copies,
  • more than 50 eBooks (mainly from Dawsonera),
  • scanned chapters or sections from over 30 textbooks for you to use via your modules on Moodle.

Many of these are new titles to reading lists that your lecturers updated through the Summer.

If you’d like to see a listing of what we’ve ordered then let me know or have a look at our LibraryThing account to get a snapshot of some of these items. Also if you come across any titles that we don’t have in the Library or think would be useful please either email or your module tutors.

Cheers
Darren, your friendly Faculty Librarian.

Any questions get in touch…. Smile
