Academic Liaison Librarians

The Academic Liaison team is here to help you navigate all the Library has to offer.

There is a Academic Liaison Librarian for each subject, who can offer specialist support and guidance, advising you on the huge range of services and resources available.

They can also help you to develop the information and digital literacy skills you'll need to make the most of your studies.
