Ive been using your great tutorial on endnote but now i can’t find it. Can you tell me where it is please. Ive looked at some on youtube and they dont cover what is in your tutorial. its great. i need to quick please help

Thanks for the feedback – The library is now utilsing the excellent information from Thomson Reuters ( the company that produces Endnote ). The web details are below. If you require assistance with endnote and you are a postgraduate student you can always contact your Faculty Librarian or Liaison Librarian.

Sorry, couldn’t find a new question section which matched my question.I’m wondering if a book/textbook can be reserved for pickup on a particular date in the future?Thanks.

Books on shelf can only be placed on hold from another campus library not from your home library.
