Are you a final year student wondering how you will cope without the amazing, horizon expanding, eye popping joys that the library has brought to you over the past few years? Well fear no more a new folder entitled Library Matters has been added to the Real World Careers area on Blackboard containing information for final year students such as how you can get free membership to Cardiff Met libraries and access to our wonderful print collections and many of the electronic resources after graduation.
The Library Matters folder also contains information about a free 12 month subscription to Artists Newsletter, a-n, that as a final year student you can access now.
a-n (known as Artists Newsletter) is a vast collection of information about being an artist and used to be published as a monthly paper magazine and various specialist books of advice and information for professional artists and makers. Since going completely digital they have digitised all their advice previously published as guides and books and journal articles and added to this mix material published using social media. A-N offers full text access to a-n published titles including a-n Collections, Research papers and Good Practice publications. Plus a searchable online archive for a-n Magazine. Plus Knowledge Bank – a career development resource and other professional development tools such as ‘The Artists Professional Development Toolkit’, ‘The Artists Fees toolkit’, ‘The Artists Contracts toolkit’ as well as many more practical guides and new video guides.
