Water Fountain in Taylor Library – update

wf5ed

Drink your fill!

 

We are happy to share the good news with our readers that the water fountain in Taylor Library is working fine again.

This means, you do not need to walk around the campus to find another water dispenser, and take long breaks from your studies when you want to refill your water bottle.

OSCOLA – citing newspaper articles

OSCOLA final

In this post, we highlight those general rules of OSCOLA referencing style that you need to adhere to when you cite newspaper articles in your essay or dissertation.

The elements of the citation are as follows:

  • Give the name of the author
  • Then, the title of the article
  • The name of the newspaper (in Italics)
  • (the city of publication and the date) – in brackets
  • The page number (if it is known) follows the brackets
  • Web address (if the article published online only, and there is no page number available).

Examples

Jane Croft, ‘Daughter loses out to animal charities over mother’s will: Supreme Court ruling’ Financial Times (London, 16 March 2017) 3

Dan Sabbagh, ‘Cambridge Analytica predecessor had access to secret MoD information’ The Guardian (London, 29 March 2018) <https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/mar/29/cambridge-analytica-predecessor-had-access-to-secret-mod-information> accessed 30 March 2018

Tip!

  • Be careful, some newspapers have the definite article, ‘The’ in their title, others do not. Make sure that you use the correct name of the newspaper.
  • If your reference is to an editorial, cite the author as ‘Editorial’.

For more information, please see Page 42 in the OSCOLA user guide or visit us in the Taylor Library & EDC.

Well, we might be able to help.
Are you looking for your

  • laptop/phone charger
  • earphones
  • water bottle
  • scarf
  • umbrella
  • or, even a pair of boots???

Please, come to Taylor Library and look around in the Lost Property section. You will find a table next to the Issue Desk with the items recently found in the library.

Do you still not see what you are looking for? Do not panic, ask for help at the Issue Desk, as USB sticks and confidential documents are kept there.

Anything of value (jewellery, bank cards, wallets, etc) – after 24 hours – is taken to the Security Office on Dunbar Street, Old Aberdeen. It is open from Monday to Friday 7.00 am – 3 pm.

Remember, your stuff misses you too, so collect them in Taylor Library until Wednesday 14 March.
