I love KnowUK [e-resource of the week]

About KnowUKWhat can KnowUK do for you? Give you access to your own personal reference library! A whole host of dictionaries, yearbooks, directories and guides for when you have a frantic, or indeed frivolous (who am I to judge?!) need for information and answers, on many topics, for any reason, right now!

Answer all those quiz questions and annoying cryptic clues in an instant!  Get up to speed with sport – just who is Rory McIlroy?  Check him out using All Time Greats of British and Irish Sport and get not just the biographical essentials, but a photo too.

Want to know when the Olympic Torch Relay will appear on your horizon? Use The Year Ahead to find out that said flame embarks on its 68 day tour of the country on 19 May 2012, ahead of the July 27 commencement of the Games.

Need a holiday? Browse leisurely through The Rough Guide to Devon (to Cornwall, England, The Lake District, London, Scotland, the Scottish Highlands & Islands and Wales…). What more could you want? No, they don’t do abroad… it’s KnowUK, remember? But while world travel guides may be scarce, they will tell you about Summer Jobs Worldwide and a host of other stuff besides.

Needs some sound advice? With KnowUK, get access to the wisdom that is the Which? library of books including Which? Be Your Own Financial Adviser, Which? Buying property abroad or Which? Pensions Explained, with many more titles available on having a baby, writing a CV, digital photography, tax and tough interview questions.

Whether it’s Black’s Medical Dictionary, The Bloomsbury Good Reading Guide, Willings Press Guide or the UK Register of Expert Witnesses, there are fully searchable and /or browseable books that will help to keep you informed and ready to cope with all life’s events. Hell, there’s even a section headed Life Events that covers the good, bad and downright ugly need for timely information on childbirth, work, marriage & civil partnerships, retirement,  pensions… and death.

All you need to use this resource from anywhere is a library membership card. It’s well worth getting to know KnowUK!
