Need some extra help? Book a tutorial!

Did you know… we have a friendly team of subject specialists waiting to help you out?

Our Learning and Teaching Librarians might already be familiar to you as they teach library inductions and information literacy skills to all courses.  However, they’re also here whenever you need them throughout the year to help with:

  • Subject enquiries
  • Literature searching
  • Mapping your topic
  • Gathering and evaluating information

You can find out more about the team on iCity and on their new online Library Skills Guide.

You can book a tutorial with a member of the team via Moodle.

May the Fourth…

The force was definitely with us this year for our latest Library & Learning Resources conference on 4th May 2016.  Our theme this year was Measuring Value: the impact of information literacy and its evaluation, and we were lucky enough to attract a range of speakers from across the UK.

The weather blessed us with a beautiful, sunny blue sky, and we were lucky to be able to enjoy the view from our shiny new Curzon Building – the view was spectacular from our 5th floor conference room.
