Let Me Take a Shelfie

The LRC has launched its first ever magazine; issue number one of |shelf life is all about getting to know the LRC. I hope you like our first edition!
 
|shelf life was conceived by students for students. The original concept was sparked from a conversation with the volunteer Student Librarians in our team meeting one week about how we can keep staff and students informed about the LRC.
 
The aim of the newsletter is to provide a termly round up of all the news and events from the LRC and about any literature events happening locally and nationally.
 
It’s all about you
 
This is your student magazine - so please send in any ideas or suggestions for features or content that you would like to see. If you enjoy reading, writing and voicing your opinion then |shelf life needs you!

What are we looking for?
 
We are looking for someone who is pro-active, enthusiastic and is willing to put their voice forward to help others. If you enjoy writing, whether you are creating your own work (e.g. stories or poems) or reviewing books, music or films, then get in touch and get involved.
 
For any more information about how to get involved, or if you wish to send us your reviews then please feel free to come and speak to us at the LRC Helpdesk or alternatively, you can contact us at: shelf.life@sssfc.ac.uk

Make A Move

The Learning Resource Centre has an After College Programme with a variety of clubs for students and staff to attend. Chess Club is on Tuesday after college in the LRC where you can come down and learn how to play chess. We welcome all levels of players; you can challenge your friends, improve your skills or just have fun!

In 2015, we launched our first Chess Tournament. This was an all-play-all tournament and after some tricky matches, we had an outright champion. Congratulations to the chess tournament winner, Callum Murphy! As the winner, Callum took away the tournament trophy and a box of chocolates.
