A very warm welcome to Homerton College Library!

A very warm welcome to all our new students and to all the familiar faces that have popped in to the Library to say hello – welcome back!

After the whirlwind of subject-specific inductions for Freshers, Higher Degree Inductions, as well as the Pre-Sessional Freshers and PGCES, the Library has now returned to ‘normal’. Normal means assisting you in interpreting your reading list; providing you with the books on the list, as well as helping you access all the electronic resources you need. We can also give a helping hand in other areas like referencing.

Like we said at your induction, we do not expect you to be library experts overnight. So well done on locating our blog – it is used to introduce you to new resources, library events and help you with your study skills. We’re here to answer any question throughout the year and are happy to answer work-based questions or tell you when the next bus goes! Call in and see us, pick up the phone (01223 747260) or email us on library@homerton.cam.ac.uk.

Please remember that if you want to be able to borrow 24/7, you will need to register your card in order to use the self-issue machine. Most of you have done this at induction, but if not, why not pop in to the Library during staffed hours (9am-5pm, Monday-Friday) and speak to a member of staff? It really does only take two minutes!

Still settling in? Remember we offer a friendly and welcoming place to study 24/7 as well as the necessary computer and printing/photocopying facilities. The Haribo may have disappeared, but the new jigsaw puzzle has arrived as well as new colouring sheets – please just help yourself!

For new PGCE students, if you think you may need to contact us whilst on placement, why not pick up one of these handy contact details stickers when you are next in the Library? They don’t take up much room in your diary or planner and also feature the link to our catalogue Heritage.

We look forward to meeting you all in the Library!
