Accessing e-resources from home

When you work from home, you may sometimes be asked to pay for access to an article or an e-book. If this happens, check if you can get free access via the library's subscriptions instead:

Learning Development Service

The Learning Development Service at Queen’s provides academic skills support to undergraduate students. They do this both on-course, as part of taught degree programmes, and via individual one-to-one engagement. Academic skills support offered includes guidance on time management, exam preparation, academic writing, referencing, academic integrity, and research.

They have also designed a Transitions Skills for University package (on Canvas) to support your learning and progress.
