Extended Project Qualification Research Trip
On Friday 1st December QES EPQ students were privileged to be given access to the myriad resources available at Lancaster University Library. Students were given a tour of the newly refurbished internationally renowned Library before they were given an induction and access to hundreds of thousands of online journals, articles, periodicals and eBooks. We then had a break for lunch where students were free to explore the University campus, and dine at one of the many diverse university eateries. After lunch we reconvened in the Library where we were given access to the Library book stock and were given help by two academic researchers as well as Librarians. Not only was the trip an excellent chance to gather research and resources for their EPQ, students also enjoyed a taste of student life and independent learning at undergraduate level, with many of them keen to come back to use the facilities in the their own time. Particular thanks go to Librarians Andy Holgate, Natalia Klaaser and Paul Newman for an excellent day!
