Library & Learning Services Team

We will meet you at Induction; our friendly staff will assist you in finding information and can work with you to help develop your digital literacy and research skills. 

Learning Services staff deliver teaching and training courses in a range of IT and Research Skills required for studying at University.  You can also get further help by popping in to see us or phoning or emailing the team.

We recommend you visit the Learning Services website where you will be able to view information about all the resources and course materials. It will give you more of a flavour of what you can expect from the team.

The mezzanine floor of the Library has just been refurbished and now has two new study pods where you can work in groups; plenty of desk space, those crucial power and charging points, comfy seating areas and a self-service kiosk.

With daytime, evening and weekend opening hours, plus a variety of group and quiet spaces, wi-fi throughout, laptops for loan and helpful staff on hand, the library is the ideal place for you to research and study.

I was quite taken aback by how friendly the staff were.
