The four week holiday is receding into the distant past, but again this year it seems to have set me up for a calm relaxed start to the academic year. As usual we are inundated with lots of students with logging in problems, giving tours of the library and classes on using the catalogue, as well as sessions on how to do library research.

Toby is starting his second year, and also he now has set shifts working in the library.
