What we do ...

Your Academic Librarian is your direct link to Student & Library Services (S&LS) and, if you're a new member of learning hubstaff, it's a good idea to contact them so that they can introduce you to the services we offer.

Academic librarians have a liaison role with the Schools and endeavour to keep up-to-date with School developments and requirements in order to effectively plan resource allocation.  We work in partnership with you to ensure students and staff derive the maximum benefit of the Library's services and resources.

We will support you and your students in the Hybrid Learning Environment. Please see the Frequently Asked Questions document.

Other areas in which we support you are through:

We can support you in your own research - see the guide for researchers

We can also advise on any aspect of the library service.
