St Hugh's College Library: Video Inductions

Subjects: College Libraries


Normally you would have a tour of the library in Freshers’ Week, where we would explain how to use the library and show you where the books for your subject are. Unfortunately, that's not possible due to the pandemic. Instead, we’ve made some short videos that should give you all the information you need. These videos will also be useful to returning students, as we also explain our new COVID-19 measures.

The complete playlist is here:
