Resources available to you
As you are aware, the Library has an extremely wide range of print and electronic resources. You can search for these using its facility Encore. An excellent search tool which can provide additional relevant ‘hits’ is the Warwick German Studies Web, which you can find at:
You should be familiar with this bibliography from your first year; if not, just read the instructions carefully – it is very easy to use.
The Library also makes available digital scans under licence of excerpts from books only available in print form. These course extracts can be found at:
This is particularly useful if you require access to print resources while away from campus. If you encounter print items which we could usefully add, please let me know, and I will investigate through the Library whether we can obtain a licence to offer them.
You will have progressed during your first year in your academic writing skills, but you may wish to consolidate these or develop them further. There are two excellent sources of advice and training which you can access at your own pace and in your own time:
- Student Careers and Skills (http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/scs/skills/) offer a wide range of study skills opportunities delivered in a variety of different ways.
- The Faculty of Arts provides a series of podcasts and links specifically on writing for academic purposes at http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/arts/english/writingprog/academicwriting/languages_sub-faculty. Please note that you need to be registered with IT Services before you can access this page – that happens as part of your induction.
