Academic Liaison Librarians
Academic Liaison Librarians provide the main link between
faculties and the library. The services they can offer
Information skills training
Each Academic Liaison Librarian can offer groups of
students lectures and workshops on searching for information and
evidence for assignments and special studies. These can be tailored
to any level of study and be linked to a particular assignment if
you wish. Please contact the relevant librarian if you would like
to include one of these sessions in your module.
Obtaining library resources for reading lists
Please send any reading lists (including those in module
handbooks) to the Academic Liaison Librarian in advance of the
module starting. The librarian will check to ensure we have, or are
able to obtain, the necessary titles for the library and that the
most up to date edition is ordered.
One-to-one research support
It is possible for students to make an appointment with their
Academic Liaison Librarian so that they can discuss strategies
for finding relevant information for their assignments
(particularly special studies), especially in relation to the use
of electronic databases.
Subject collection development
The Academic Liaison Librarians will endeavour to develop a
collection of resources appropriate to the degree programmes
offered within their faculties. This includes electronic resources
such as e-journals, eBooks and databases, AV materials and
software, alongside traditional books and journals. Please contact
your librarian if you would like a title to be considered.
