What Queries Does Jesse Deal With?

Hello everyone,

My role at UL is the Librarian for Student Engagement & Student Success. As one-third of the Student Engagement & Success Unit, I support UL students and look to improve your student experience at UL.

The Glucksman Library provides peer support to you through the library Peer Advisor Service. We hire a team of students each year to help you get familiar with the library's resources and help you find your way around. You might notice them in red t-shirts or hoodies when you are in the library. They are available in the library throughout the semester.

Your lecturers will expect you to use scholarly sources to write your assignments. I would recommend you use the resources available in the library, such as textbooks, journal articles, and electronic databases. Don't rely on Google to find quality sources. Visit the Library YouTube channel for more information on how to find books, articles, and much more.

If you want more information on where to look for sources for your subject – visit the Libguides.

The library runs regular events to help you find, manage, and evaluate information, how to reference your assignments, and much more. You can register for our events on the library events calendar. 

Please feel free to contact me at jesse.waters@ul.ie for support or any questions about using the library.

Best of luck!

Jesse
