Are you a member of academic or teaching staff? Are you engaged in research? Do you teach? If so, there is a lot that the Library can offer you.

Reading lists

Are you using the Talis Aspire reading list system to present your list to students this year? Aspire enables you to create dynamic reading lists for your students, providing them with direct links to all reading materials.

If you need any support with using Aspire please get in touch with your Academic Support Librarian who would be happy to arrange an appointment with you.
