What can your subject librarian do for you?

What can your subject librarian do for you?

Your subject Liaison Librarian is your main point of contact with the Library – there is one for every subject offered at Reading. They can help you make effective use of the huge range of resources the Library has to offer in support of your studies by:

  • showing you how to use information resources effectively - your librarian can offer training sessions for your School/Department and produces guides such as this one to relevant resources in your subject
  • showing you how to save time by making the most of all our Library services
  • giving you individual help with research - your librarian can offer in depth one-to-one help in finding information, including identifying the most relevant e-resources for you to use
