Academic Liaison Librarians

Academic Liaison TeamThere is an Academic Liaison Librarian for every department. They can help you make effective use of the huge range of resources the Library has to offer in support of your studies by:

  • showing you how to use information resources effectively - your librarian can offer training sessions for your School/Department and online Library guides for your subject
  • show you how to save time by making the most of all Library services
  • give you individual help with research - your librarian can offer in depth help in finding information, including identifying the most relevant e-resources for you to use
  • supporting you with referencing correctly and using reference management tools such as EndNote and Mendeley to help take the pain out of referencing.

Our short video highlights the support your Academic Liaison Librarian can provide - view on YouTube or watch on Yuja (University username and password required).
