The term time Library Research Cafe sessions have ended for the summer and will resume in Term 1 2024/25.  However, lots of friendly support and guidance is available throughout the summer to help you with your library research.


Library Research Drop-ins


You can come along to a Library Research drop in session run by your liaison librarians.  Sessions take place at various locations on campus. At these sessions you can get guidance on all aspects of your library research including:

  • making the most of the vast array of the library's information resources and academic databases
  • using key databases for your research area
  • finding high quality information to support your research, essays, and projects
  • referencing guidance

These are informal sessions.  There is no set content or agenda, just come along with your questions and queries and chat them through with your librarians. 


1:1 Appointments with your Academic Liaison Librarian


You can  book a 1:1 appointment with your Liaison Librarian to discuss any aspect of your library research. Your librarian can:

  • support you in developing your online search strategies

  • help you to identofy and use relevant research databases and other information sources

  • provide guidance on evaluating and referencing research materials.

  • and lots more….


If you are not sure who the librarian is for your subject, use the drop down menu on the Academic Liaison Librarians guide.  Choose your subject, and you will see details for your librarian, useful guides for your subject and appointment booking and contact options.
