There's nothing like a real book!

In this time of technology and digitisation and libraries being closed due to funding cuts it's easy to forget about the simplest pleasures in life.  One of mine is spending hours in book stores browsing the shelves and handling the books!  Come on....I know you feel the same way too.  That's why you're going to love this film made by Sean Ohlenkamp and Lisa Blonder Ohlenkamp.  So don't forget to support both your local bookshops and your local libraries.

ScHARR Bite Size is Back!!!

 Posted by Andy
It's a new year, so why not make a new year's resolution of finding at
least one new way of working, or discover a new resource that will
help you teach, support students or carry out your research.

For anyone unaware of what ScHARR Bite Size is:

Bite Size is for everyone in ScHARR - if you manage a research
project, write a paper, supervise a student, search a database, use
the library, use any of the Google tools, have virtual meetings - then
an investment of 20-30 minutes might be time well spent.
