Information for Academic Staff

Your Department's Library Liaison

The Academic Engagement Librarians are your first point of contact for the Library. Any member of the team can help with your enquiries, but each department also has a dedicated contact (see below). We work closely with departments to ensure that the Library meets your teaching and research needs.  We provide support for programme reviews and validations, aiming to improve performance in student satisfaction measures such as the NSS, MES, PTES, or TEF.

You will see us at Departmental Committee Meetings and LTQGs where we represent all of Library Services. We also provide one-to-one support and training for academics in managing your online reading lists, and using and evaluating specialist library resources such as databases. If you have any questions about the collections, e-resources, services or any Library issues please do get in touch. We look forward to working with you!

Collaborative Partnerships

Many of the university's agreements with collaborative partnerships entitle students to access to Library resources, through negotiating with publishers to extend online access. Each partnership with access to Library resources has a dedicated Partnership Library guide, which provides staff and students to links of resources, as well as, information about membership, Learning Skills materials, contact details, and IT support. 

The AE Team work closely with Link Tutors to liaise each partnerships resource requirements and resource lists, where applicable.

You can find a list of current online Partnership Library Guides here.
