Subject Liaison Librarians (SLLs) provide help and support for students and staff in accessing the Library and its resources. Each department has a dedicated subject librarian. They are responsible for ensuring the Library has the best resources available for the department and therefore are well placed to offer advice on which databases or journals would be best for you or your subject. They are also experts at digital and information literacy skills such as planning research and keeping up to date, referencing, literature searching and using online tools, such as social media. Throughout the academic year Subject Liaison Librarians run training sessions for groups and individuals on these topics via our LibSmart programme.

If you need help with any of the above, you can contact your SLL by email or book a one to one appointment. Find your SLL by looking on our guide. Or alternatively you can drop in at the LibSmart Point, located in the Learning Commons on the first floor of the Library. Help is available in the afternoons, from 1pm - 5pm Monday to Friday.
