The new LIS Self-Service Portal is now available, enabling you to log a helpdesk call or request an IT service instead of phoning LIS Customer Support.
From 2016/17, the structure of UCLan's Academic Calendar has changed to better support our students moving forwards.
The main difference will enable most students to finish the academic year by mid-July knowing they are able to return and progress the following September.
In summary the changes are:
As a University student you’re in a high risk group and it’s important that you make sure you’re vaccinated against meningitis. It’s highly contagious and kills indiscriminately. Survivors can be left with brain damage, organ damage and limb loss caused by septicaemia. The University Medical Centre can arrange your vaccine.
Due to the fact that Key Note have not been publishing any new content since May 2016, UCLan's institutional subscription to this resource ceased at the end of July 2016.
Other market report content platforms are available and students are recommended to investigate Mintel, Passport and databases such as WARC - LIS are currently scoping a substitute database which will be announced in due course.
Please contact CollegeLibrarians@uclan.ac.uk for further details.
The University subscribes to lynda.com - a fantastic online resource providing video courses and tutorials in a wide range of topics. UCLan students receive free, unlimited access to this incredible service.
Each training course comprises a series of short videos, so it’s flexible enough to fit in around your studies; allowing you to watch either a whole course or specific videos whenever you need them.
Following each course, you will be awarded with a 'certificate of completion', providing documentary evidence for potential employers as well as a record to add to your personal development portfolio.
