  • access a range of resources that will enable to search for articles on your topic 
  • access to a range of online support material to help you make the most of library services and resources

Your Subject Librarian

Remote support is available from your subject librarian on:-

This support is delivered through Microsoft Teams which you have access to through Office 365; simply contact your subject librarian by email to arrange an appointment.
