Library support


This page provides information for staff about the ways in which the Library can support your students.

Teaching sessions

The Library Academic Support Team can help your students develop their academic and professional skills. Academic Librarians and Academic Skills Tutors will work with you to tailor the teaching to the needs of your course and link it to the learning outcomes of your module or assignment. The Academic Skills Prospectus has full details of all the in-curriculum sessions offered, which include:

  • Literature searching / using information sources

  • Referencing skills (for Harvard, APA or OSCOLA)

  • Essay writing

  • Critical thinking

  • Independent study

  • Preparing for your dissertation or major independent study

  • SPSS software training

  • Using Microsoft Office software

Embedding these teaching sessions in your curriculum allows the students to contextualise academic skills within their course content, helping them to apply what they have learnt to discussions and assignments.

To request an in-curriculum session for your students, please complete our online request form.

  • Postal loan service within Europe
