Academic Librarians: Staff: Home


Each Faculty has a subject specialist Academic Librarian who is responsible for library liaison, collection development and supporting the teaching of information skills to staff and students.

Academic Liaison

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.

Collection Development

  • Talis Aspire Reading Lists - Academic Librarians are here to help tutors create, update and amend their online reading lists so that tutors and their students can make the most of the resources on offer at the University. Find out more about Reading Lists.
  • Digitisation - The digitisation team are able to digitise a chapter of a book for a module reading list. Visit the digitisation page for more information.
  • Ordering eBooks - We operate an e-first approach when ordering book items, meaning that if an e-copy is available this will be ordered in place of a print copy. If there is not a suitable 'multi-user' e-book model, a print copy will be ordered. Email the Academic Librarian for your Faculty with your book request, module code and the approximate number of students requiring access when ordering new books. Find out more about the process of ordering eBooks on our blog.

Teaching and Learning

Librarians offer one-to-one appointments for staff and students, plus a range of blended learning activities and workshops for students.

One-to-ones and workshops provide help with referencing and finding information for assignments, including using Northampton Electronic Library Search ONline (NELSON) and databases.
