Support for your teaching

Each School has an Academic Librarian who works in partnership with the academic staff to support their teaching, learning and research activities. To support your teaching,  Academic Librarians can deliver tailored sessions on a variety of information literacy, digital literacy and academic skills topics which can be embedded into the teaching programmes in your School.

Examples of topics which can be delivered include:

  • introduction to the Library
  • conducting a literature search or review
  • understanding plagiarism and how to avoid it
  • correct referencing and citation
  • referencing software tools
  • time management
  • reading and note-taking
  • essay and report writing
  • presentation skills and group work
  • revision and exam skills

Arranging information literacy or academic skills teaching

If you wish to organise a customised lecture or workshop, please contact the relevant Academic Librarian who will outline the options available including:

  • sessions being delivered to a particular cohort of students,
  • a blended approach including self-paced learning materials, such as the study skills Advice sheets and the Know-How module on Learn,
  • or other generic courses already on offer such as the Library Know-How or PGR workshops.

The Library welcomes suggestions for courses and supporting materials.
