Summary of sessions

About Library Lunchtime Learning

These short sessions last between 15-30 minutes and run on Tuesday and Thursday lunchtimes.  We cover one small topic in each session.  There's no need to book, just join through teams for our online sessions, or show up for our in-person sessions.  One of our Librarians will take you through the topic being explored in a short presentation and answer any questions you have. These informal sessions are open to all students and staff of the University of St Andrews.  More sessions will be added.
