Academic Liaison Librarians

Academic Liaison Librarians

Academic Liaison Librarians provide the link between departments and the library. They can help identify relevant subject resources (databases, journals, books, data) for your research and provide guidance and training on locating information for your subject.

You can contact your Academic Liaison Librarian (and browse their subject pages and resources) via our subject pages.

If you would like to contact me (as the Academic Liaison Librarian for Research), please use the form below (you can also use my contact details provided on these pages). I will identify if I can respond to any query by email, or if not identify a convenient time to meet and go over the query raised in more detail. If I cannot help, I will endeavour to direct you to someone, or a department, who may be able to offer help.

You may find some quick answers by following the quick links on the right of this page, or by browsing through this web pages for researchers on the University Library website.


Use this form to outline a query you need help with and request a 1-to-1 with the Academic Liaison Librarian (Research) to discuss. I will endeavour to respond as soon as I am able, and identify a convenient time if appropriate.

Request a 1-to-1
Use this form to outline a query you need help with and request a 1-to-1 with the Academic Liaison Librarian (Research) to discuss. I will endeavour to respond as soon as I am able, and identify a convenient time if appropriate.

Please give as much information as possible. This should at the least indicate your question (and subject area), and what solutions you have already tried (if any), or any indication of if you have been directed to contact me by another department or individual.

If you have a deadline by which you need to get a solution, please indicate here. Please note that I amy not be available to immediately answer any question submitted, or to arrange a 1-to-1 at short notice, but will endeavour to do so should your request be urgent. If you need an immediate answer, you may be best contacting the library in person or by phone, or by using the online 'have your say' form which will be monitored by other library colleagues.

If your request is not urgent, please leave this field blank; I won't treat this less urgently, but it will allow more flexibility to suggest convenient times to meet if required.
