Staff

We provide a range of services for academic and research staff including support for enhancing your teaching practice and to help you make the most of your research.

Resources for your module

Submit your reading list

Submitting your reading list to the library in good time is essential for ensuring the resources your students need are in stock in the right quantities before the module begins. Your Academic Support Librarian can provide further advice and information.


Digitisation requests

  • Use our Course Extracts service to make a request for a chapter or article to be scanned and made available for your students
  • See further information about how to make a digitisation request and what we are able to legally scan under the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) Higher Education Licence

Develop student skills

Your Academic Support Librarian can work with you to create opportunities for students to develop skills within the curriculum covering:

  • Finding and evaluating information
  • Referencing and avoiding plagiarism
  • Using digital tools and presentation technologies

We focus activities to suit student groups across different disciplines and levels of study.

Our successful Student as Researcher initiative can develop content with you for online, face-to-face or blended delivery, leading to formative or summative assessment as required.
