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:
Click the support icon in the global navigation
Click the link to Extra Curricular / Learning Resources
Select the Library icon
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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
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 email@example.com
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. Here you’ll be able to access course-specific information about Library resources, teaching and learning materials and most importantly for now, your Online Library Induction. 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…
