Ask Your Librarian

About us

Throughout your degree you will need to know how to effectively search for information. Knowing how to find the best sources will help you understand your subject and get the best possible grades.  We can help you navigate the library as well as showing you how to use referencing software such as RefWorks. 

If you need a bit of expert help with this you can use our 'Ask Your Librarian' service which you can book onto via Starfish.  We offer appointments from Monday - Friday between 9am - 5pm.

Bookings for the Ask Your Librarian appointments are done on Starfish using the 'My Support Network' option.  

*We will be conducting all Ask Your Librarian appointments using Microsoft Teams until further notice. Please ensure that you have downloaded Office 365 to facilitate your appointment.
