In your first few weeks at uni you should have completed the Five steps to Start Connected. By the time you are given your first assignment, you should have tried, or know how to complete, these six Next steps.

 1. Find my Subject Guide

To find your Subject Guides

This takes you to the Subject Guide for your course.
The Subject Guides home page also has quick links to a range of important library resources.



 2. Find books and access My Library Account


​Use the Library Catalogue to find books, ebooks, journals, DVDs, theses and a range of other resources. You can check where books are available and reserve a copy.

From your Subject Guide, follow the Quick Link to Library Catalogue.


Use My Account to make sure you never have to pay a library fine: renew your books online and check when they are due back.


 3. Reserve or borrow PCs on campus


​Did you know you can

  • reserve a desktop PC in our computer rooms and libraries to guarantee access during busy times - to find out how see PC Bookings
  • borrow a laptop when you are working on the Moulsecoomb and Falmer campuses  and at St. Peters House Library - to find out more see Laptop loans

 4. Print my work


​There are self-service Print/Copy/Scan machines on every campus. You can print A4 or A3 size and in black and white or full colour.  You can even print from your mobile. To find out how, see our  Network Printing page

All our libraries have self-service heat binders, which you can use to finish your printed work - ask at the Help Desk.

Our Print Services teams offer a range of advanced printing services, includes large format, posters, fliers, postcards, folding, binding and gold embossing. To find out more see Print Services  page.



 5. Submit work via studentcentral and Turnitin


Make sure you know how to submit your work well before the due date. We provide help and advice on electronic submission in the Assessment area for each module in studentcentral

Our  eSubmission Guide provides help with:
  • the studentcentral assignment tool
  • the Turnitin online assignment submission tool within studentcentral
  • viewing your grades and feedback in My Grades
Turnitin includes an originality checker, which compares the text of a submitted assignment against text from a wide range of electronic material.

​Take advantage of the university's premium subscription to LinkedIn Learning. There are thousands of high quality video courses enabling you to develop new skills and achieve your potential.

Topics cover anything from learning new software and giving brilliant presentations to playing a musical instrument. The Overcoming Procrastination course can be really helpful when you are given your first major assignment!  Find out how to access your LinkedIn Learning account here.
