Developing your students' academic skills

The Library Academic Support Team can support you in developing your students’ skills in:

  • Information and digital literacy

  • Academic communication

  • Maths and statistical analysis

  • Using IT

For all these areas, the Team provides academic skills teaching embedded in the curriculum, a programme of generic workshops and webinars and an opportunity for one-to-one support through short appointments with Academic Librarians and Academic Skills Tutors

Digital and information literacy

Academic Librarians work in partnership with academic staff to ensure that information and digital literacy skills are embedded into the curriculum.

Contact the Library Academic Support Team to:

  • Arrange in-curriculum teaching sessions within your modules

  • Arrange Library inductions for new students

  • Ask about the other ways they can support your students

Look at our online subject guides which encourage students to become self-reliant in their library research and in the use of information technology.
