Information for teaching staff

The Library is here to support your teaching. Subject Librarians can help you arrange Library services for your and your classes.

Please approach your Subject Librarian with any questions you may have. If you are a new staff member, your Subject Librarian will be happy to explain the Library's services to you. Services that may be of interest to you include:
