  • LIS Training Sessions for Staff

    Web of Science

     Tues. 9 March 12-1 pm

    PC Room 3 in the library

    This database indexes over 10,000 journals  in all disciplines.    The session will give practice in the use of Web of Science to find journal articles, book reviews and other material and will include an introduction to unique advanced features of Web of Science, such as cited reference searching.   Cited reference searching allows you to take a paper or book on your topic which is well known or useful and find out who have cited that paper in their own work – the likelihood is that they are working on the same or a related topic.

    FAME (Financial Analysis Made Easy)


    Thurs. 18 March 18 2-2.45 pm

    PC Room 3 in the library

    FAME is a database from Bureau van Dijk which allows the user access to financial & company information for companies in the UK & Ireland, large and small.

    Seven million companies are listed over the last 10 years, even companies which have ceased to exist.  The user can simply retrieve a company report for a single company or search for companies within specific parameters, for example  list  companies according to industry sector with over £X turnover in a particular geographical area.  Results can be exported to Excel.

     Future Training sessions

    Details of further sessions will appear on the Training Sessions for Staff web page.  To book a place at any of these please email

  • Voyager System Maintenance

    Voyager, the library catalogue, will be unavailable for a short time due to system maintenance.

     The system maintenance begins on the morning of Tuesday March 23rd and we expect the Voyager web catalogue to return during the afternoon of Wednesday March 24th.

     During the upgrade, items from the libraries can be borrowed and returned at the library issue desks, but it will not be possible to make requests or to renew books or to use self issue and self return.

     Please contact me if you require further information.
