  6. 6. Result! – fab feedback within University“New guide looks great thank you” : Stage 3 Sociology student“Many thanks for sending around the link to the new library page for politics. 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. Am emailing for 2 reasons. Firstly, justwanted to express how much I LOVE the libguide for SELLLL... it might be the best thing since...well, point 2 on this email. Its fantastic and easy to use and I love it. Point 2 is the followingwebsite: am emailing you as it might be useful to stick onto the literature libguide. www.djo.org.uk You might already have it, but I definitely found it useful! : EnglishLiterature student
