Friday 15 April – Monday 18 April – All libraries will be closed.

You will need your Unicard to access the libraries and computer rooms during evenings and weekends. See the Library Services website for full details of their opening times until 10 June including their computer rooms.
Don’t forget that you can access the Online Library 24/7 for subject guides, ebooks, journals and information on research skills and referencing. If you need guidance on how to make the most of the library as a researcher, or to help track down the best resources for your topic, get in touch with one of our Subject Specialist Librarians.
Brighton Student Skills Hub
The Brighton Student Skills Hub gives you resources and support to help you to develop the skills you need for confident university study. If you need a boost to get you started, check out our self-guided resources, on topics such as establishing effective study habits and revising for exams.
Make use of the Hub’s academic writing development experts, who can provide personalised feedback on the organisation and clarity of your ideas, academic style, and the structure of your written work. You can also book a one-to-one tutorial with the designated BSSH academic skills tutor for your school, to discuss topics such as structuring your written work, incorporating sources, and how to use feedback.
To be ready for work or further study in the future, you will need to have a good understanding of your skills and how to describe these to other people. Get a head start by downloading and completing the The Career Skills Workbook and use the Hub’s digital skills resources to develop your digital literacy, too.
