Forthcoming WISER workshops for images in teaching and learning, and finding books on SOLO (for those who would like a refresher!)

Viewing, presenting and managing images are also covered. The focus of this session will be on images for Medieval & Modern Languages, but members of other faculties are welcome to attend. Please note that this session will not include hands on. This session will take place at the Taylor Institution, Room 10b. There is no need to book - please just turn up.

WISER Finding Stuff - Books etc on SOLO (Friday 28 October 9.30-10.30 and repeated Monday 14 November 10.00-10.45).

It also includes placing "hold requests" for materials in the remote store / bookstacks and for items which are out to other readers, how to use your SOLO "MyAccount" for book renewals and other administration and using the SOLO e-shelf and alerts.
