Services for Staff

Academic Staff using the Library

If you are a new or existing member of staff we aim to show you how Library and Learning Resources can help your students achieve their full potential. We hope you agree that an academic library service has an integral part to play in a positive student experience.

We also offer a full range of resources to support your academic research.

Overview

Library staff are here to make your lives easier. Each subject has up to three librarians attached to it. Each has a specific role:

  • Collection Management Librarians: this is the team to contact about purchasing resources for the library, advice on reading lists, or if you want to make existing materials more accessible. 
  • Learning, Teaching and Research Librarians: this is the team to contact if you wish to arrange library inductions, one-to one tutorials or teaching sessions for your students, or if you want a demonstration of a database.
  • Customer Services Librarians: this is the team to contact if you are in the library and have a question about finding or using any of the materials you need.

Librarians will attend a range of departmental and staff and student meetings to discuss library matters with students and academic staff - we always welcome your feedback.

Support we provide

  • Tutorials: Librarians are happy to do one-to-one tutorials with staff and students offering support on using library materials (print and electronic) and developing search strategies so that library users can get the most from our resources.

           Visit our skills workshop pages to find out more (requires logging in to BCU Moodle).

  • Workshops: Librarians can do group workshop sessions for students highlighting key resources and explaining how to develop search strategies to ensure that students get the information they need for their research and assignments. Find the librarian that supports your subject in the Contact Us section below.
  • Inductions: Learning Teaching and Research Librarians can do in-class library induction sessions for new intakes of students and refresher sessions for returning students introducing library services and introducing students to the print and electronic resources they will need during their course.Find the librarian that supports your subject in the Contact Us section below.
  • Reading Lists Online:  Collection Management Librarians can help academic staff to locate, use, create, and manage reading lists for their students.  Students can find lists easily with a single search that gives results for matching lecturer, Faculties and Schools. Take a look at our quick introductory guide to Reading Lists Online, or contact the Collection Management Librarian for your subject who will be happy to help.

Visit our Find Resources pages to view the full range of resources available to both staff and students. If in doubt, drop a member of staff a line and they will be more than happy to help.

Services for researchers

We also offer a dedicated range of resources designed to meet the needs of the BCU research community. Take a look at our Services for Researchers page for more information.
