NK (North Korea) News trial access

The Library has arranged temporary trial access to NK News, which provides news and analysis about North Korea. The site intends to bring authoritative news, opinion & analysis, research tools, data and subject specialists together in one convenient place.

Trial access extends until December 31. Please send your comments about this resource to Catherine Downs, the Subject Librarian for Politics and International Studies. Advice is available if attempting to access this resource away from the University network.

Now open - Library Undergraduate Travel Bursaries Scheme

For the first time funds are available to help cover travel costs for undergraduate students who wish to visit other libraries and/or archives to further their studies.

The scheme is for undergraduate students undertaking or about to undertake their final year dissertations or projects. This includes students in their penultimate year preparing in advance for their final year projects.

We offer this scheme through a collaboration with Bristol SU's Undergraduate Education Officer, Max Austin and the University's Development and Alumni Relations Office. The Alumni Foundation already issues grants to help registered students with the costs involved in travelling to conferences where they will be presenting their research findings. This new scheme fills a gap for undergraduates who need to access library and archive collections away from Bristol.

Applications for the bursaries are welcomed from students of all disciplines. Up to £250 will be available for successful candidates.

Further details about the application process are available.
