We will show you where your print material is located and follow up with a quick demonstration of how to find books and online material including exam papers — this session is scheduled for all First Year students during September.
  • Library Online Resources                                                                                           
    Overview of the online services available, the best resources to meet your needs, tips for searching and how to keep up to date with research. These sessions will be tailored to meet the needs of groups in question. See our YouTube video here

Work together in groups or get help with assignment writing...

Book the Group Study Room for project work and/or to practice presentations.  The room is equipped with an LCDscreen, PC and  a whiteboard (please ask for markers at the library desk).


The Academic Writing Centre (AWC) is also housed in the library Group Study room. There are eight half hour one-to-one sessions per week.  The Centre offers focused academic writing tuition to students at all levels, in all years. Find out more and pre-book on the library website.

Training Delivery Methods

Most library training sessions take place in the Library in the Group Study room on the first floor. If a group is too large to be accommodated in the room, it is preferable to split large groups up for more effective results.

If you are unable to attend a library session, keep an eye on the plasma screen in case any sessions are coming up and don't forget  that many of our tutorials are available online, including Searching the Online Catalogue, Setting up a Library PIN, Placing Holds, Searching Online Databases and Setting up an EndNote Account.

All of our online tutorials are available on the Library's YouTube channel.
