Help, advice and training


As your subject librarian, you can come to me for help on information and library-related matters. Whether you are having trouble using the catalogue, need some advice on internet searching, want to know more about databases or are stuck with referencing, I am the person to ask!

I also run training sessions when asked by academics from the courses I support, and am often involved with modules on research skills or evidence-based practice.
