perps6Dear All
The University Librarian and her team (UGLS) welcome all members back to the start of a new semester. I hope everyone had a good break over the holidays and returns rested, refreshed and ready to engage anew.

This is just a gentle reminder that we are a key partner in your teaching, learning and research activities. We aim to provide you with the best possible support and I hope faculty will make use of our rich collection, spaces and services especially, training services provided by specialist staff.

I invite you to explore our sites http://balme.ug.edu.gh and http://library.ug.edu.gh to familiarize yourselves with our resources. Examples are:

  • Sage Research Methods (supports research at all levels by providing material to guide users through every step of the research process)
  • Scopus (abstract and citation database, useful for literature search and review)
  • Annual Review (captures current understanding of a topic and sets the work in historical context)
  • ScienceDirect (full text multidisciplinary)
  • JSTOR (full text multidisciplinary)
  • Jaypeedigitals (Health sciences: Reference works, textbooks, journals, videos of surgical procedures and MCQs- Full text)
  • Endnote X8 and Mendeley Institutional Edition reference management software.

I also look forward to your visit to our libraries.
