It’s sometimes really hard to find the time to fit everything into my life. Fitting my OU studies around work and other commitments can be quite challenging.

Luckily I’ve found a way to squeeze my library searches into those small pockets of time which might otherwise be wasted waiting for things.

I can start a search for journal articles that I need for writing my assignment when I’m forced to hang about.

Ulcer disease in goldfish? Oh! That doesn’t sound good.

There’s even a list of databases that will work on my mobile. And if I don’t understand I can check the library’s FAQs or contact the helpdesk. I can also check which online training sessions are coming up.

Being able to search like this really saves me time when I’m studying because I’ve already identified the library resources I can use.

Leaving me more time to do those other important things.
