UoR Library Welcome Week Events

We’d like to wish you a great big welcome from all the staff at the University of Reading Library!  Although we’re doing things a little differently this year, we still have a great variety of events planned for you for Welcome Week and beyond.  Here’s a rundown of what’s going on:

New student Libguide

An online guide telling you about how everything is working in the library including useful videos, answers to questions, where to get help and all our welcome week events.

Introducing your library

We are running online workshops to guide you through some basics about using the Library, and how we can help you in your studies at UoR.

Self-paced tours

We know there’s a lot happening during Welcome Week, so if you want to just take things at your own pace we’ve created a self-paced tour for you to go through online.

Virtual Escape Game

An online time travel escape game that you can play solo or with friends to introduce you to some slightly usual events in the Library!  Time yourself as you play and let us know how speedy you are on social media!Image shows lots of clocks to advertise the Library's time travel virtual escape game
