Our Learning Development team teach the following information skills sessions:

  • Getting started using library resources

You can also embed asynchronous versions of each of our sessions within your modules to support coursework and assignments. Browse our suite of information skills sessions (PDF)

We run these sessions throughout the year as part of our open programme for students but you can also request a session on a date and time that suits you. We’ll tailor the content to ensure it meets the specific needs of your students.
