Revision week and exams: make sure you know the library rules!

With the revision and exam period almost upon us the library can get extremely busy. With this in mind we would like to remind our users of the food and drink rules that apply in Taylor Library.

Food is permitted provided it is not hot, overly fragrant or noisy. So for example sandwiches, salads and last night’s pizza are fine. Soup, curry and crisps/popping candy are not. Drinks (excluding alcohol) are permitted under the condition that hot drinks be covered with a fixed lid. In addition, while drinks are permitted throughout the library under the aforementioned conditions, food is NOT allowed in the PC classroom or near PCs in other areas of the library, in Project Rooms 1 and 2 or the silent areas in D block.

To check what is (or isn’t) allowed in each of the library zones, look at the relevant signs on the tables or, ask a member of staff.

It is our aim to provide a harmonious study environment for all service users at all times. Please help us to do so!

Good luck with your exams!

Working with Word 2013: how to create a table of contents

First you need to give your document some headings. Then highlight and apply a style to your headings from the Styles group on the HOME tab.

Inserting a table of contents (TOC):

  1. Make sure your cursor is at the start of your document.
  2. Open up the REFERENCES tab and click on the drop down arrow in Table of Contents.
  3. Select a style or go to Custom Table of Contents for more options.

Editing the table of contents:

Click anywhere in your table of contents; your TOC will appear with a border around it. There will also be an options tab at the top:

  • Click on the down arrow in Table of Contents. This will allow you to change the style or delete the TOC altogether.
  • Click on Update Table to automatically update your TOC with content that has been added to your work after the insertion of the table of contents.
