The Open University Library is on YouTube! Our channel gives you an insight into our award-winning Library and features content designed to help you maximise your everyday use of it. There’s plenty of stuff for you to get your teeth into, including:  

  • recordings of our online training sessions that cover a variety of topics, from using Library Search for assignment writing, to how to construct references
  • referencing guidance from our Associate Lecturers on the University’s change from OU Harvard to Cite Them Right Harvard
  • videos released during Fresher’s Week, featuring top tips from the Library that every new (and returning) student can use to enhance their studies
  • insights from our Librarians to help you navigate the wide range of content, resources, and services available to you from the OU Library

There’s also some great content that allows you to get to know our Librarians a little better, as well as a tour inside the famous Betty Boothroyd Library building. Head on over to The Open University Library channel and if you enjoy it, give us a like and subscribe!
