Self-enrol on the St George’s Library module in Canvas

In case you didn’t already know, the Library now has a home in Canvas – St George’s virtual learning environment (VLE). You should expect to see content and resources develop in the SGUL Library module over the coming academic year, but for now the module has a key role in hosting this year’s Online Library Inductions – see here for more information.

If you don’t see the SGUL Library module on your Canvas dashboard, it’s really easy to enrol yourself:

  1. Click the support icon in the global navigation
  2. Click the link to Extra Curricular / Learning Resources
  3. Select the Library icon
  4. Click ‘Join this module’ on the right-hand side of the page

Alternatively, this very short video will guide you through the process.

If you have any questions about the Library module in Canvas, Library inductions etc. please email us on liaison@sgul.ac.uk

Library Induction Tours

Yesterday’s Postgraduate Fresher’s Fayre was a great success – we met over 100 new and returning St George’s students to tell them about their new online induction (SGUL login required) and the fantastic prizes they could win for completing it!

The Library’s stand at Fresher’s Fayre – we’ll be back on the 23rd September for more!

To complement our welcome talk and online induction we’ll be running tours of the Library where you’ll get the opportunity to meet one of our Liaison Librarians and explore our study spaces. Everyone is welcome and there’s no need to book – tours will be leaving from outside Blossom at the following times:

Wednesday 28th August: 10am 11am 12pm 1pm

Thursday 29th August: 10am 11am 12pm 1pm

Friday 30th August: 10am 11am 12pm 1pm

Tuesday 3rd September: 10am 11am 12pm 1pm

Wednesday 4th September: 10am 11am 12pm 1pm

Tuesday 10th September: 10am 11am 12pm 1pm

Wednesday 11th September: 10am 11am 12pm 1pm

Tours will depart from the seating area surrounding Blossom the cow.

If you can’t make any of these dates, we’ll be running more tours at the end of September for our new undergraduate intake, so expect to see some more dates published on the blog nearer the time.

In the meantime, your can familiarise yourself with the Library and its rules, services and resources by checking out our Library Essentials Libguide.

If you have any questions about the inductions, tours or using the Library, you can email us at liaison@sgul.ac.uk

St George’s Library Prize Draw!

Every year St George’s Library welcomes our new undergraduates and postgraduates with a Library induction: this year we’re changing things up… we’re moving our Library Inductions online!

As well as meeting your Liaison Librarians at your welcome lectures, all new starters will be enrolled onto the SGUL Library module in Canvas, your VLE at St George’s.

You can also find a link to it here (SGUL Login required).

As keen new St George’s students, we hope you’ll be interested in exploring the Library module regardless, but appreciate that an incentive or two might entice you! Therefore, any student who completes their online induction will be automatically entered into a very generous prize draw…
