Exciting news for Information Studies students!

We’ve been subscribing to a great resource affectionately known as ‘LISA’ for many years. This resource has been invaluable to Information Studies students and staff for many years.
LISA (Library & Information Science Abstracts) helps to focus searching for international scholarly literature on library and information science. However, as suggested by the name it is an abstract service only.
We are really pleased to announce that we now have access to the ‘Library & Information Science Collection”. This new collection now searches our much loved LISA, as well as the Library Science Full Text Database.
In summary we now have over 300 full text journal titles included when you search the ‘Library & Information Science Collection’.

We wish you an enjoyable Christmas break!

We are so lucky here in Aberystwyth with lovely rolling hills and great walks. It seemed fitting for our last team meeting of the year to escape the screens and get together outside before the Christmas break with a team walk and coffee catch up at Nant yr Arian.

This term has been busy and has passed really quickly! It’s been a great mix with online as well as face to face teaching sessions and providing support. We’ve loved being back on the Hugh Owen Level F enquiry desk, helping with many varied questions and queries.

We are here until the Thursday 23rd December, if you need any help contact us at librarians@aber.ac.uk After the break we’ll be back on the Tuesday 4th January.

There will be some computer rooms and study spaces available over the Christmas break, more details can be found here: News Item : Information Services , Aberystwyth University.

We would like to wish everyone a lovely break and look forward to helping and supporting you in 2022!

Meet the Team!

Over the last 18 months we have all been working online via Teams with students and other colleagues. It was great for us as a team to finally all meet up face to face, enjoy a walk along the prom and have an outdoor meeting to help plan our activities for 2021/22 (we even had the dolphins for company!).

We are all looking forward to meeting you in the next Academic Year, and in the meantime please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need any help.
