We’re excited to announce that from Monday 25 October, we’re offering an additional hour of enhanced library support every weekday lunchtime. Whenever you have a tricky question needing an urgent answer, but your own Academic Liaison Librarian isn’t available, drop in 13:00 – 14:00 to the Study Advice desk on the ground floor of the Library (to the right of the stairs). The duty liaison librarian will set you right!
This service complements our Study Advice drop-ins for urgent study queries (i.e. those which cannot wait for a longer appointment with a Study Adviser), available from the same desk at the same time, 13:00–14:00 weekdays.
The Study Advice desk is currently open 10:00–14:00 for you to ask quick searching tips, general library advice or to set up an appointment with a Study Adviser or your Academic Liaison Librarian.
What can you ask an Academic Liaison Librarian?
- What is the best database to use for my assignment?
- How can I get started searching for books or journal articles?
- Where can I find particular types of resources e.g., newspapers, archive material?
- How do I search Enterprise or Summon effectively?
- How do I find a reference listed in a reference list?
- Which referencing style should I use? How do I format a reference to a source? – and other quick referencing queries.
What do students say about asking their librarian?
- “I found it really helpful and supportive”
- “[The librarian] made it simpler and easier for me to learn/understand how to use [Endnote]”
- “Absolutely brilliant! Problem solved. 10/10”
- “I came in confused but left relieved and with much understanding of how to reference and cite papers”
- ” I haven’t used the library before, so it was very helpful”
