In addition to the news items listed here, the Library also produces the Researcher's Weekly Bulletin, a weekly round-up of announcements of new electronic resources acquired by the Library (for example, databases and journals), news of new web sites, trials of databases, announcements of forthcoming conferences and other information of interest to researchers.
Not only does EndNote order and organise the references that you use during your academic life, but it can take the pain out of referencing by inserting citations and references in the exact way your tutor has requested. So if you forget where your italics and fullstops go, learning EndNote can take the pain out of your reference list.

We're turning the page to a new year in the Library with a brand new collection of books, brought to you through an exciting collaborative project with Manchester Public Libraries (MPL).
Each term will see around 150 books loaned to us by MPL, which will be available to students at Manchester Met as part of our Love to Read programme.
The first collection launches on Friday 20th January 2017, and includes popular fiction, cookery books, biographies and more – including Hilton Als, Haruki Murakami, Andy Murray and Ella Woodward.
You can find the books in the reading corner in the Ground Floor Foyer of All Saints Library, together with our selection of current newspapers and magazines.
The even better news is you can borrow up to two books from the new collection at any time on top of your normal borrowing allowance.
If you aren't a member of MPL, why not join? Membership is free and open to anyone living in the UK. You can borrow books, use computers and access their electronic resources.
Made a new year's resolution to read more? Check out our Love to Read guide for Library staff recommendations - this month we're picking out the books we'd like to read in 2017.

Finnegans Wake took James Joyce seventeen years to write. Published in 1939, it was his last and most extraordinary prose work. Despite influencing diverse creative fields, it remains more referred to than read. Its experimental language discourages many from discovering the book's lyricism, depth and outrageous humour. Often regarded as the preserve of scholars, it has a reputation for requiring guides, annotations and other interpretive aids to understand it. So what happens if we read it simply for itself, as a novel?
Drawing the Wake presents practice-based research by Clinton Cahill, Senior Lecturer in Graphic Design at Manchester School of Art, using notational drawing to capture interior visual impressions in the moment of reading.
