Making the most of your Library off-campus

Webinars and 1-1 appointments

In line with the University decision to transition to the online provision of teaching and learning over the course of this week, the Library is now offering a remote service to ensure that we continue to effectively support your studies.

1-1 appointments

You can book a remote 30 minute one to one appointment with an Academic Skills Adviser – these can take place via telephone or using Blackboard Collaborate (a web chat tool that allows screen sharing). View our current appointments or for up-to-date availability see Unihub.

We offer a limited number of appointments after 5pm from Tuesday-Thursday: view our calendar to book.


We also offer online webinars, on topics including academic writing, critical writing and research skills. View our calendar for a full schedule of webinars and to book your place.
