Over the last several weeks there have been ongoing problems with e-books that are available through the Dawsonera site - we have alerted you to these problems through the news section of the library web page and through our social media accounts.
Unfortunately these problems are still occurring and Dawsonera are working their way through a series of actions one by one to eliminate the issues and improve the site speed and performance.
In the meantime we want to try and help you obtain the information you need, so if you are unable to download or view e-books online we may be able to provide you with a copy of one chapter through the Document Delivery Service, providing we also have a copy of the print book available.
Click here to find out more about the Document Delivery Service, and don’t forget you can contact us if you have any questions (email@example.com).
Whether you’re a new student wondering how to get started or you just need a bit more help, the library is here to support you.

Get to know your library and start to find your perfect learning shape by taking the six step library Scavenger Hunt!
Download the instructions from the library welcome pages or by clicking the images above. When you’ve completed the scavenger hunt fold your instruction sheet to make one of four origami shapes and take a photo of it.

The 20th FIFA World Cup is currently well underway in Brazil and logistically it is a huge undertaking with events taking place across 12 cities.
As such a large sporting event it is an example of large scale events management and hospitality and a catalyst for tourism to the host nation.
Over the next few posts I’ll share a few examples of research on sports events management, hospitality & tourism but you’ll find even more relevant books and journal articles on the Library Catalogue and Discover.
