Library Services for Teaching Staff
Our friendly and professional team are here to support students with the resources and skills they need for academic success. We offer a range of library services for teaching staff, and encourage staff to work with us to improve both library services and student outcomes. The library is responsible for the acquisition of books and e-books, print and online journals and magazines, as well as the procurement and management of online databases and other products including the EBSCO Discovery service, CAB Abstracts, Digimap and ClickView.
