Your Academic Liaison Librarians

The Academic Services Team provides support, teaching and training to undergraduates in information and digital literacy, and in how to get the most from library resources.

We offer workshops, individual training and support; your ALL can provide further information on any of this (see contact details below). Every York St John University undergraduate is given the opportunity to attend an induction session with the Academic Services Team where we can advise on how we can work with you to support you in your studies.
