The Deskside training service from the Library is a new service for academic staff and research postgraduates from your Academic Subject Librarian.
Contact us to save time using electronic resources and other services for your research and teaching. I look forward to hearing from you!
Starting on Monday 30th January the Library will be opening earlier:

The closing times remain the same, and so do desk services during the week, however at weekends the desk will open at 9.15.
This is a pilot scheme to see how the service is used during these extra times.
