Academic Skills Support
Searching, evaluating and managing information are the cornerstone of academic studies.
Because it is critical you develop information skills as a student or researcher, most BCU courses include learning outcomes related to information literacy which contribute to your final marks.
The Learning & Teaching and Research Services librarians give introductions to library services, facilitate group sessions, provide one-to-one tutorials and create e-learning content that will teach you the skills required for each level of your academic journey and beyond.
