Did you know that there is a dedicated subject librarian for your programme? Our role is to support you in your studies by helping you use the library and all its resources effectively.
With over 300 different databases and millions of resources your librarian can help you discover the best places to search for your own research and how to go beyond your reading list. We can also help with critically evaluating sources and how to decide whether information is credible and suitable for academic work. If you struggle with keeping track of your references and find writing your bibliography hard then speak to us about how reference management tools like Mendeley or Zotero might help.
Find out who your librarian is on our webpage. If you would like help or would like to meet us to discuss the support we offer you can book an online appointment or get in touch via email.
