Francine's profile pictureMy name’s Francine Wood and I’ve just started as the new Subject Librarian for Biosciences and Psychology.  Just a quick virtual wave while I settle in to room 109 in the Science Library, and work out how to record a voicemail message…. (020 7679 2868 to hear how I get on!)

This blog was designed to keep students and staff from the School of Life and Medical Sciences up to date with library developments, and I hope to update it regularly with news and articles that you might find useful or interesting.  If you have any questions, ideas or requests for things you would like to be included here, please get in touch.  My email’s f.wood@ucl.ac.uk.

News and information to follow soon…


P.S. I’ll also be tweeting @UCLScienceLib
