To celebrate the 60th birthday of the Central Office of Information, the National Archive has made available a selection of public information films made between 1945 and 2006. This is the first time complete public information films have been published on the web. The films are a major source of social history, not to mention nostalgia! They range from a 1940s film on how to use a pedestrian crossing to much more recent films on the importance of eating 5 pieces of fruit or veg a day and climate change.
The whole collection is available at http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/films/.
Don’t worry, all may not be lost. You could put in a request for an extension. Here’s a link to UniPal that tellsyou how to do just this… http://tinyurl.com/aek2e3k
You’ll need to log-in with your username and password then click on the link to ‘Admissions and Records’ and you’ll find a question about getting an extension complete with the answer on how to do it. Good luck.
If you live a long way from campus and would prefer to be able to use the library of a university closer to home read on.
We have a reciprocal agreement in place with Leeds Metropolitan University, Sheffield Hallam University and Lincoln University. This agreement allows limited borrowing of books from these universities libraries and runs for a whole academic year.
Ask a member of library staff for a letter of introduction to take along to your chosen university library. You will need to make sure your library account is in good order before you collect the letter (that means no fines or overdue items).
If you’re graduating this summer please make sure your library account is in good order and you have no outstanding fines or overdue items as these may prevent you from graduating.
Once again we have listened to your comments. We know that last year many of you were frustrated with long login times, particularly in the Library and Computing Centre. So this summer we have been working really hard to get the login times reduced and we have got them down to about 1 minute!
