Durham University

Organisation Development


The Library supports the academic work of the University by the provision of appropriate resources and services. Library staff want to enable all postgraduates to make the fullest use of these. Through the Faculty Postgraduate Training Courses you will have a formal opportunity to learn more about the services offered by the Library. For subject-specific support throughout the year you can contact the Liaison librarians for your subject, and enquiry desk staff will be glad to assist with general enquiries.
