For your students, Academic Liaison Librarians are the main point of contact with the Library – there is one for every subject offered at Reading. They can help your students make effective use of the huge range of resources the Library has to offer in support of their studies by:

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

 

Help for your students: If you think your students would benefit from our expertise, they can contact their Academic Liaison Librarian directly, or ask for help at a Library information desk.

Help for you: If you’d like to arrange a tailored group training session, or to discuss other ways of increasing your students’ engagement with our resources, please contact your Academic Liaison Librarian.

The Library also provides online guidance for Library users with disabilities and on finding and using inclusive technology to support your students’ learning.
