Each subject has a specialist Academic Librarian who is responsible for library liaison, collection development and supporting the teaching of information skills to staff and students.
Librarians work with staff to ensure they get the most from the library's collections, resources and services. This includes attending SSLC and other meetings to discuss library services and resources.
Librarians offer one-to-one appointments for staff and students, plus a range of blended learning activities and workshops for students.
Academic Librarians contribute to the Integrated Learner Support offer, which ensures all undergraduate students receive embedded support at each stage of their studies, alongside our colleagues in Learning Development and the Changemaker Hub. For further details on this please see the document below.
We have a range of videos, guides, interactive tutorials and blog posts available via our award winning Skills Hub, which cover the core academic skills that students will develop throughout their studies.
Each subject has their own specialist subject librarian who is their primary contact. The table below indicates the subject librarian for your area. Our contact details are above - we would love to hear from you!
