  • Structured systems that integrate fully with Moodle to deliver personalised reading lists and legally digitised material to the student’s desktop.
  • On-demand, friendly supportive help via library staff help desks, email and phone enquiry services regarding any aspect of the Library’s services or resources.
  • Group training for students and staff on the effective and timely use of resources via quality Induction and InfoSkills.
