With Orientation Week almost behind us, we now look forward to the start of the new term and welcoming new students into our five libraries. As part of our ongoing welcome and introduction efforts, all week long we will be featuring a new information area on Level 1 of the James Joyce Library, which we call the “Welcome Garden”.
Stop by if you have queries, need directions or just have a chat with our staff who will be happy to help you as a newbie to UCD Library! We will have lots of information for you to take away, and we’ll feature our popular “spin, learn and win” Prize Wheel, which you can play to discover a fact about the Library’s services, resources and facilities and, of course, win a small prize.
Be sure to enter our prize competition for new students, which features five great prizes with values up to €200. Vouchers from Ryanair, IKEA and other prizes are up for grabs! Just enter by Thursday, September 14 to be in with a chance to win. You can enter by filling out an entry form at the Welcome Garden, or pick one up at any of our libraries and drop it in our entry boxes. We’ll announce the lucky winners the following week!
Finally, check our our New Students guide, which contains a summary of Library resources and links to our website and online practical guides. Good luck with your studies and we hope to see you soon in one of our libraries!
