Guidance on getting Library resources to support your teaching, ways in which we can help develop your students' academic practices, and Library resources for supporting your teaching practice

Support from Library and Study Advice

Your Academic Liaison Librarian and the Study Advice Team are happy to contribute to modules or run one-off sessions at all levels, from Foundation to PhD. Examples include developing effective search strategies, evaluating sources, referencing and using EndNote. Contact your Academic Liaison Librarian to discuss your requirements. They will consult with the Study Advice Team to cover all aspects of academic practice with your students.

Curriculum Framework

To assist Schools and Departments with implementing the Curriculum Framework, the Library has produced two documents which outline ways in which Academic Liaison Librarians and study advisers can support the embedding of academic literacy skills within your programmes.

The first document outlines practical ways in which we can support you, mapped against the graduate attributes and academic principles defined in the Framework. The second outlines in more detail the pedagogic principles which underlie our practice, drawing upon elements of established information and digital literacy models, again mapped against the Framework.

Please get in touch with your Academic Liaison Librarian if you would like to know more about how we can support you in implementing the Curriculum Framework in your school or department.
