We have created Library Guides to help you discover the resources for your subject as well as links to online tutorials.
If you want to speak to a librarian for more support we offer drop-ins and bookable 1-1 appointments to help you get the most out of your Libraries & Collections.
Library Drop-In Sessions
Library Drop-ins have been cancelled until further notice due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
We’re offering a limited number of one-to-one appointments via Teams from April 2020 to support you with literature searching.
We can give guidance on:
- Navigating the library's online resources
- Database Searching Techniques
- How to use databases
- Literature searching, including planning and creating search strategies.
1-1s last 30 minutes and when you make a booking we will ask for some information on what you want guidance with. This is so we can prepare and ensure your session is as helpful as possible.
These 1:1s will be run using Microsoft Teams, once you have booked an appointment we will send you a Teams invite and video call practical guidance.
