All about our Libraries...

Welcome to our libraries 2022 - Sway presentation

An overview of the content in this guide is available as a Microsoft Sway.

Sway is a web-based tool for creating media-rich presentations, which can be created and viewed from a variety of devices. Sway content has numerous ways to customise viewing and navigation even if you didn’t create the Sway yourself. 

If you are not familiar with using Sway the instructions below will help you use this effectively and change options to suit your needs.

Tours of the libraries

During Welcome Week, the Library Team will be running 30-minute introductory tours to Staffordshire University Library. 

At these sessions, new students will gain confidence in the basics of navigating the library and accessing the help and study support available.

Week beginning September 26, the tours will run from Monday to Friday starting at the Library Catalyst location (foyer of Catalyst) every half hour beginning 10:00am with the last tour starting at 15:30 - no need to book. There are separate arrangements in place for students based at Stafford and London.

  • Using their subject page
  •  Finding a book
  • Library locations
  • Study spaces
  • Accessing Library and Study Skills support
  • Getting help from Student Connect and Beacon.
