The Library provides a range of services to support students enhance their academic & study skills and digital literacy.
Librarians offer a range of inductions and workshops tailored to the needs of your class. These can include:
tours of the library demonstrating how to use the Library catalogue and borrow books, as well as showcasing key text books and additional material.
visiting your classroom to offer more in-depth sessions, such as identification of online resources such as ebooks and ejournals, and using the Internet for academic purposes.
using databases to search for journal articles or copyright free images.
Simply get in touch with your Academic Liaison Librarian for more details and book your group in for a session.
We know that many of our students are part-time, have families and other commitments, and are not always able to stay on campus to study or find resources. Here are some ideas that will help your students:
Students are welcome to book one-to-one or small group sessions with their librarian. We can help identify relevant resources, offer refresher or advanced sessions on using databases or e-Books, help using journals or finding information online, and advise on referencing. The quickest way for students to contact their librarian is by email, but they can also phone or ask at the Library Information Desk.
The library subscribes to a range of resources that can be embedded into Moodle courses or used in class. Some examples are below, but contact your librarian for subject-specific resources.
