Foundation Worship Monday 25th January 7pm - Annual Covenanting service

by Mark Earey -

Don't forget that our annual Foundation service of renewing our ecumenical covenant with one another will be taking place on Zoom next Monday, 25th January, at 7pm.

We pick up on the Methodist tradition of using this time of year to renew our covenant with God, and extend it to include our covenant to ecumenical unity with one another. This year we will be focusing on this covenant with one another, and will not be including elements of the traditional Methodist Covenant Service, but if you wish to explore that tradition, there is information here.

25th January is also the end of the international Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, so it makes a very appropriate context in which to explore what that unity looks like specifically for us at Queen's.

CLICK HERE for the Zoom link to join the service - or you can find it on the Chapel Info page of Moodle. (If you have trouble joining via the link, here is the information: Meeting ID: 999 9299 0131, Passcode: 391114)

See the attached document for the words of the commitment we will be making to one another.

Issues with Turnitin and accessing marks

by Judith Rossall -

Dear All,

We seem to be experiencing a problem with Turnitin and some people are finding that they are unable to access their marks and tutors comments when they first try.  We are really sorry if this has happened to you.  It does appear to be a temporary problem and it would really help us and relieve the pressure on registry if you could do the following.  If you are unable to access your marks, please try again a few hours later.  If, after 24 hours, you are still unable to gain access, please email moodle@queens.ac.uk and I will monitor the issue.

Best wishes

Judith

An Update on Library Usage

by Clive Marsh -

An Update on Library Usage

Due to government guidance during this period of lockdown (all unnecessary journeys and presence on campus being actively discouraged within Covid regulations) we have had to come to the conclusion that aside from those who live on site, in-person collections of books from the campus must be suspended.

The postal service, however, will continue to be available. Whilst the encouragement of all library users to make as much use of e-resources as is possible remains, the temporary suspension of the collection service is not intended to discourage use of physical books. We simply ask all to think carefully about what is actually needed.

With regard to book returns, books can be posted back to the library, including using the Royal Mail’s ‘parcel collect’ service. Returning books in person to the Returns Box remains permissible only if you can do so within current government guidelines. Drop off is easier than collection!

We trust that you will understand that this change to library arrangements, whilst inconvenient, is necessary in the current climate.

Best wishes to all

Clive
