Studying from home? The Library’s got your back.

The shift to online learning has happened pretty quickly, and you might be wondering where you can get help and support. Well don’t worry – Academic Liaison Librarians continue to be available to help with your research.

We already have a huge bank of resources to help you prepare for assessments, whether that’s for finding information or referencing. You can check out our Subject Guides for starter resources and top tips for university research. If you’re an international student, you might want to check out our special guide.

The Library’s youTube channel also has great introductory skills videos – and if you’re looking for a way to take a break from your studies, why not check out some of our Rare Bites talks? (Dr Karl’s talk on Principia is a classic!)

Many of our in-person workshops are now being offered via Zoom. If you want to tune in for a class experience and learn with other students, head over to the Workshops page on the Library website and join in from the comfort of your couch or bed or breakfast table! Over the next month we’ll be adding even more opportunities to learn about research, so keep an eye on the Library’s social media channels and check in on the workshop calendar.

You’ll probably find that your faculty or school Academic Liaison Librarian already has some presence in Canvas, but you can also reach out by email by visiting our Meet with a Librarian page. And if you can’t find an answer by email, we can arrange a one-on-one consult via Zoom.

And if you’re a Higher Degree by Research student or a member of academic staff, we’re here to help you with research metrics, publication, reference management and more.

So while we’re staying physically distant, there’s no reason to be socially distant – your Academic Liaison Librarians are here for you!
