Group photo of the Academic Liaison Librarians teamYour Academic Liaison Librarian is your main point of contact with the Library - there is one for every subject offered at Reading. 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
