Good news, the National Library of Wales has recently launched its Higher Education Learning Page.

Online registration to the NLW is now available, so you don’t have to go all the way to Aberystwyth (although on a nice day there are few more pleasant drives). By registering online you can join the Library and register for a NLW Athens username and password at the same time. You will receive an Athens username and password by email which will give full access to the NLW’s electronic resources without any charge. Bear in mind that this Athens username and password is your personal set for the NLW only. You will still require a separate Athens username and password to access some of Bangor’s electronic resources.

For a list of what is available from NLW using Athens have a look here, there are a lot of quality resources, some of which Bangor doesn’t currently subscribe to.

It’s been a damp summer so far I think it’s fair to say. Even the ducks I’ve spoken to have been saying ‘well don’t get me wrong I like a spot of rain but it’s starting to get on my nerves now’. My football team (the mighty Sheffield Wednesday FC) currently have over a foot of water at their Hillsborough ground – if we invest in some flippers and goggles over the summer we could significantly improve our home advantage.
