Workshops for staff

We provide support and training for staff throughout the year:

One-to-One support

You can book a one-to-one session with your Academic Support Librarian to discuss your Reading Strategy for a module, learn more about the Library’s resources or services, get advice on your research or Open Access, or using specialist reference-management software – email us or pop into our office CH211 on Level 2 of the library to book an appointment.

Workshops

Our specialist workshops cover topics from ‘Introduction to the Library for researchers’ to more advanced topics such as ‘Advanced literature searching’. We announce the dates of all upcoming workshops well in advance, and you can sign up for workshops through our online booking system.

Support for your students

We can help you improve your students’ use of the library and their information literacy skills through our classroom-based teaching sessions, our regular student workshops, and individual support tutorials:
