Specialist advice

Each faculty, school and department has a liaison librarian who is your contact in the library. We are subject and resource specialists: find out how we can help you.

Sourcing new and relevant library materials to support your units

Contact us if there are required and recommended texts you would like your students to use. If you are teaching a new or changing course or unit, we can help you identify relevant resources. We can select new materials for purchase, guided by library collections governance.

Managing reading lists

We can help you make your readings lists available to students in Blackboard or via Search the library, using the Subject materials service.

Embedding library resources in Blackboard units

We can help you embed online resources and tools in your Blackboard units and provide instructions on linking specific formats (login required).  If you are developing a blended or fully online unit, we can help you source relevant online resources and tools.

Research skills training for coursework students

We can work with you to develop tailored training programs linked to assessment requirements for your students. We offer research skills sessions to students at all levels, including advanced training in discipline-specific databases. Contact us to arrange sessions for your lecture or tutorial groups. We can deliver sessions in the library training room, lecture theatre or tutorial room.

Referencing help and EndNote training

Invite your students to attend our Harvard style and EndNote workshops each semester and introduce them to our online style guides and tutorials on referencing and EndNote. Ask us about referencing and EndNote training for your students outside these times.

Using copyright-protected material in teaching and learning

Ask us about using copyright-protected material in your teaching or consult Copyright for Teaching. We can source copyright-compliant resources for use in your classroom and Blackboard units.

Higher-degree research student support

Are you supervising higher-degree research students? Liaison librarians offer research consultations and assistance to research students at any stage of their degree. Simply refer your students to their liaison librarian or contact us to arrange an appointment or group training session on your students’ behalf.
