UoR Library Welcome Week Events 2021

We’d like to wish you a great big welcome from all the staff at the University of Reading Library!  Wondering about how to use the Library and what’s available?  We have a 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 webinars 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 going on right now!  So if you want to just take things slowly, at a time that suits you, we’ve created a self-paced tour for you to go through online.  Or you can pick up one of our handy expandable maps in the Library, to take a look around the building yourself.

Virtual Escape Game

We have 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 a locked door surrounded by steampunk clocks and patterns. Text reads how about playing our virtual time travel escape game? You can play online with friends, or by yourself. See the new student libguide for how to play.

UoR Library reading challenge

This year we’ve created a month by month reading challenge including both e-books and hard copy books.  Why not take some downtime from your studies and try something you might not have otherwise read?  Share your favourites with us on our social media channels.
