The International Student Library Seminars give new international students information on the UCL Library services, from using library study spaces to accessing their collections and online library.

As a UCL student, you will have access to UCL’s many libraries, extensive printed library collections and vast online library. We understand that navigating such a wealth of resources can be a challenge, whether you are starting university for the first time, or coming from another university.

It can be particularly daunting if you are also new to the UK, or if English is not your first language. You may be wondering how the library differs from libraries you have used in your own country or elsewhere.

In this seminar we will:

  • outline what to expect from UCL’s libraries;
  • give an overview of the different types of learning spaces available
  • explain how to access our printed collections and online library;
  • tell you how to get help and support when you need it to ensure you get the most out of your library.

You will be able to submit live questions during the seminar so we can address all your concerns or queries. We look forward to seeing you in the seminar, and in our libraries.

When are they happening?

The International Student Library Seminars will be taking place from 12.15pm to 12.45pm on Thursday 21 September and Friday 22 September 2023, in the week before the First Term starts.

This is the week in which most new international students choose to arrive at UCL and will be exploring our campuses and London. This is such a crucial point in your time at UCL and we want to make sure that you have all the information you need to make the most of it.

Where are they happening?

The International Student Library Seminars will be taking place on the UCL Bloomsbury campus in G22 Lecture Theatre, North-West Wing.
