How your Subject Librarian can help you

We can save you time by helping you to refresh your reading lists; make the most of our resources (books, ebooks, journals, databases, special collections) and WorldCat; advise you on copyright matters; and support you as you carry out your own teaching and research - just let us know how we can be of assistance.

How your Subject Librarian can help your students

We maintain formal links with Programme Leaders, or with nominated academics acting as the main library contact for each programme team.  Our aim is to provide your students with accessible learning spaces, tailored training and guidance, and appropriate, up-to-date learning resources.  We allocate a proportion of the library budget to each subject, which is spent in collaboration with the team by way of the liaison academic. Any funds not spent by 1st May each year are returned to the library's central budget to be spent at the discretion of the librarians.
