Undergraduate resources

Exam papers

A collection of past examination papers are kept in the Library Office. These are for reference use in the library only, but may be photocopied or scanned. You must sign on the pink card inside the envelope on the inside of the ring binder before you remove it from the Library Office. These may also be available to download from your course's CamTools or Moodle site.

Research/Critical review and analysis examples

Examples of Part II Zoology and Part II Neuroscience research/critical reviews and analyses across different topics are available for reference use in the Library Office. You must sign on the pink card inside the envelope on the inside of the box file for any research/critical reviews or analyses you remove from it. They may only be consulted in the library and cannot be photocopied or scanned.

Project and dissertation examples

Examples of Part II Zoology and Part II Neuroscience projects across different topics are available for reference use in the Library Office. Examples of Part II BBS dissertations are also available. You must sign on the pink card inside the envelope on the inside of the box file for any projects or dissertations you remove from it. They may only be consulted in the library and cannot be photocopied or scanned.

Folders of recommended reading

Lecturers sometimes photocopy journal articles or book chapters for their students to read or photocopy. They are stored in folders under the lecturer's surname.

There is a small collection of Part II Zoology and Part II Neuroscience folders in the Library Office. They are kept here because if they go missing they are perhaps harder or impossible to locate in another library, or they belong to the lecturer personally.

All items in folders are treated like Overnight Loan items, so they can only be consulted in the library until 4:00pm (Monday to Thursday) and can be borrowed overnight until 11:00am each day. Any items borrowed on a Friday after 3:30pm or over the weekend must be returned by 11:00am the following Monday. You must sign on the pink card inside the envelope on the side of the folder for any items you remove from it before leaving the Library Office.

Library guides

Guides to the Balfour Library for undergraduate students are available to download, either from the Library Guides page, or from the Balfour (Zoology) Library Information section of your course's CamTools or Moodle site, as well as the Balfour (Zoology) Library Guide to Electronic Information Resources. There are also hard copies for reference and to take away from the library.

Also on CamTools and Moodle you will find links to the library website, where you can sign up to or simply read the News Feed for the latest library updates on new services and resources.
