Disability and inclusion related Library resources: Help

A guide to finding disability and inclusion related resources and information

Getting help

Disability is an area of research which covers a wide range of subjects and crosses many academic disciplines. This guide has been created to help you find some of the key resources the Library can provide and point you towards other useful online resources and libraries and archives. If you would lke to research disability related topics within your own subject area, your subject Liaison Librarian can help with this.

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 – liaison librarians create online Library guides for your subject and can provide group (embedded or standalone) training sessions for your School/Department
  • showing you how to save time by making the most of all Library services
  • providing you with individual help with your research – liaison librarians can offer in depth one to one help in finding information including: helping you to identify the most relevant print and e-resources to use, provide guidance on developing effective search strategies and advise on referencing, including the use of bibliographic management software such as Endnote   

If you would like further help, please contact your subject liaison librarian directly.
