2020 Book an appointment


For many queries we recommend emailing Ask a Librarian or using our Live Chat.

For more in-depth one-to-one, online support with using library resources, referencing or academic integrity support you can book an online appointment with a Liaison Librarian.

Your online appointment can last for up to 30 minutes and takes place on MS Teams. You will be sent a link via email, so please make sure you enter your email address correctly when booking. You can book a maximum of one appointment in a calendar month. 

If you need an in person appointment, please contact the Liaison Librarians for your subject directly.
