Transcript of Rethinking induction
The first thing you need to know is that the Library is open 24/7, and that your University card IS your Library card.
This Prezi presentation will take you on a tour of the Library, which includes embedded video. You can keep
pressing the right-arrow on your keyboard or screen to move through the whole tour
, or go straight to what you need - move your mouse to the right of the screen and then use the icons to zoom in and out, clicking on any floor to see more info.
We'll start with the ground floor of the Morrell Library.
Refreshments (including Costa Coffee) served from 8:30 am - 8pm during the week and 11am - 4pm at the weekends.
Whatever you need, ask at the Help Desk. It's staffed during full-service hours - more info on that: http://www.york.ac.uk/library/locations/service/
Returning books is easy - just place them into the machine. Watch this short video for more guidance:
You can take books out via the self-issue machines. Here's how to use them:
The Morrell Library Ground Floor
This area contains a lounge to relax in, the Help Desk, printers, facilities to take books out and return them, and PCs which run YorSearch, the Library search tool (which you can also find at http://yorsearch.york.ac.uk).
If a book is essential for a module and lots of people need it, your lecturer may ask that we put it in Key Texts - this means it's only available for four hours at a time to ensure everyone gets a turn. You can book your 4hr slot via YorSearch.
At various points on
each floor there are
multifunction devices from
York Print Plus which allow you to
print, copy or scan using your Library card. You can put credit on your account online or via kiosks in the Library.
