About our workshops, tutorials and clinics for students and how you can book

Workshops for students

We want you to get the most out of the Library’s resources and services, so we provide free tutorials and workshops for students throughout the year:


You can book a one-to-one support tutorial with your Academic Support Librarian to get help using the Library, working on your assignment, advice on searching databases or on how to reference – email us or pop into our office CH211 on Level 2 of the Library to book a slot.

Workshops and clinics

Our friendly workshops and clinics cover topics such as:

  • Referencing - this will be an introduction to the key concepts of referencing and you will have a chance to ask questions

  • Finding information for assignments - this will help you find academic-standard information: from books to journals and websites

  • Sage Research Methods - this will help you begin your research if you are doing a research project at level 5,6 or 7

  • Using the virtual library - this will show how to find and use online library resources including books and journals

  • Understanding legal sources - this is a session for non-law students who need to understand UK legislation and case law

  • Dissertation drop-in sessions - no need to book, come and ask an ASL about any research, information or referencing queries you have

We have dates for all these sessions available up to Easter 2020 find the details and sign up for them through our online booking system.

Learning development sessions

Student Support also run a number of sessions to help with your academic writing and other skills. You can find more detail and dates for these workshops at the Learning Development workshop Moodle page.
