Workshops and tutorials for students

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


You can book a one-to-one support tutorial with an Academic Support Librarian to get help using the Library, working on your assignment, advice on searching databases or on how to reference – book a slot here.

You can book a tutorial any time throughout the year.

Workshops and clinics

Our live workshops usually start towards the middle of the first semester (end of October). Once the dates are released you will be able to check the details of forthcoming sessions and sign up for them through our online booking system. 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

  • Using the virtual library - this will show you 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

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. These are not run by the library so if you have any questions about the Learning Development sessions please email them.
