Afraid to Ask? Watch and Learn

We're always here to help in the Library, but for those of you who don't make it so far as our Information Desk we've made some short "movies" showing some basic functions on our Catalogue and website.

As Library productions of course they're silent (shhh...), and we won't be packing for the Oscars just yet, but we hope they'll be of assistance to some users.

For starters we've covered the following areas

(if they're too small to follow just click on the full screen option on the bottom-right of each window)

How to renew a loan

How to reserve a book that's out on loan

How to find and read an ebook on the Catalogue

How to search, copy and print with an ebook

These clips can also be found on our website by clicking on Online Tutorials in the Online Resources page.

They were made using free software so if you think you'd like more of the same (for other tasks) let us know at and we'll see if we can get Spielberg in again...
