Samar Shahid - PG researcher

As a PhD student, I often work extended or unpredictable hours, so I truly appreciate the library opening hours, and having access to work from the Weston Library 24/7.  Although we have access to e-resources all the time, being able to come into the physical library environment makes a real difference to me. I also like how easy it is to access the print collection, take out books using the automatic system - and keep hold of the books as long as I want (as long as nobody else reserves them).
