It’s that time of year again where exams and deadlines are at the forefront of people’s minds. This can, of course, be a stressful time for students, particularly if you can’t find the information you need to help you prepare. With that in mind, here are four places you can go to get the support you need and help minimise those stress levels:
- Your subject librarian (ie me!): If you require any assistance in using Library Search or the library in general, please do not hesitate to get in touch and I will be more than happy to arrange a one-to-one session with you. You can contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, by phone on 020 8223 3140, or send me a tweet via @PsycLib_UEL.
- Skillzone: Skillzone Advisors are available to help you with a range of study skills in particular, writing, maths and IT. The support they provide is not subject specific and is open to all students at UEL. If you require any one-to-one assistance, get in touch with a Skillzone Advisor.
- Info Skills: Check out our Info Skills website which contains advice on finding, evaluating and referencing information. As well as step-by-step guides, the website includes videos and visual guides on key library tools.
- Psychology subject support page: The subject support page contains information about key databases and websites to find information. It also contains a list of helpful study skills texts specific to psychology and APA referencing guides (remember to refer to Cite Them Right if you are on a course where you have told to use Harvard referencing).
