It is really a terrificresource for students (and staff)” : Postgraduate Research DirectorI just thought I’d thank you and colleagues for the time you put into setting-up the Singaporelibrary guides. We found that there are various ways into some of the e-resources off-site, notall of which give full text access (journals) or sometimes have time restrictions on viewing e-books; and without the guides we would have been in a bit of a mess here – students had nodifficulties using these very quickly (so thanks very much!): Programme Director, SingaporeI was in one of your sessions on the library the other day.
