If you are an avid collector of Pokemon, or indeed just have a passing familiarity with Pokemon Go, you may be interested in how the game concept has been used by a university in Thailand to teach children in rural communities about the risks of parasites. Children hone in on, find and capture virtual parasites using their mobile phones in the same way as Pokemon Go but then get to read about the parasite, how it can be caught and the harm it can cause before answering questions and receiving a score with the top scorers winning prizes.
We are delighted to report that with the re-opening of the Ravelin Park side ground floor toilets the refurbishment of the Library toilets is now complete. We now offer more toilets than ever before, with accessible and disability friendly toilets on all floors of the Library. We hope you enjoy the new facilities.
Many people have some degree of difficulty working with large blocks of print but most are reluctant to ask what alternatives, tools and services are available to allow them to learn in a way that suits them better. Those who do talk to us often do so only after they arrive. If you have any difficulty working with text or printed materials, please get in touch with the Library’s accessibility manager, Annushka Donin, who will be very happy to discuss what personally tailored alternatives and solutions we can offer you. Even if you have told your department you have a difficulty with using printed or text materials, it is unlikely they will have told the Library, so please get in touch.
We are pleased to report that the refurbishment of the Ravelin Park side ground floor men’s toilets has been completed and that the toilets are once again open and ready for you to use. We hope to be able to re-open the Ravelin Park side ground floor ladies’ toilets as soon as possible.
