Information for teaching staff

All University staff are welcome to join the Library. For an introduction to our services, please read the Making the most of your Library guide.

Getting materials to support your teaching

Raising student satisfaction with Library resources is one of our highest priorities.

Create your reading lists online and ‘publish’ them as soon as possible - and by the advertised deadlines - so your liaison librarian can review the resources required and order in any new or additional stock well before the start of term.  Contact your subject liaison librarian for help with both print and online resources, and scanning articles and chapters to be made available via your reading lists in Blackboard.

For more information about using the University’s online reading lists system, please contact your subject liaison librarian, or see Online reading lists a guide for academic staff.

Once you have your account set up you can login to the Online reading lists system.

Developing your students' academic practices

Your subject liaison librarian and the Study Advice Team are happy to contribute to modules or run one-off sessions at all levels, from Part 1 to PhD. Examples include developing effective search strategies, evaluating sources, referencing and using EndNote. Contact your subject liaison librarian to discuss your requirements. Your liaison librarian can liaise with the Study Advice Team to cover all aspects of academic practice with your students.
