Librarians: About us

The Academic Liaison Team

The Academic Liaison Team is a team of librarians who support academic staff and students. The team is part of the wider Learning Services Team which includes the Maths Learning Centre (MLC), the Drawing Centre and the Centre for Learning and Study Support (CLaSS).

Your faculty librarian (check this page to find out who is the librarian for your subject area) can help you get the most of our services and resources. We support your learning and teaching and can help you develop your searching, critical thinking and referencing skills. Your faculty librarian is also your key contact for feedback, guidance and questions.
