Calling all January starters...

Are you a ‘January starter’? If you began your Greenwich Programme this month, now is the time to begin thinking about information skills.  

At Avery Hill, Stockwell Street and the Drill Hall Library, librarians are on hand to offer hands-on help in our dedicated Student Support Rooms. The Student Support Rooms offer a drop-in service so no appointment is necessary. Professional librarians are available to help you Monday-Friday 9am-7pm, Saturday & Sunday 11am-5pm. We can help with finding articles, literature searching, locating quality information on the internet, bibliographic citations (referencing and reference manager software) - or tell us what you need to know. You can also email us at: Avery Hill: ah-librarians@gre.ac.ukGreenwich: mg-librarians@gre.ac.uk and Medway: dhl-librarians@gre.ac.uk
