Information about services available to academic staff at Manchester Metropolitan University Library

Support for academic staff

 Subject librarians are a good first point of contact for many Library services and have specialist knowledge of the information sources relevant to the subjects taught in each faculty.

They can also help with reading lists, ordering books and journals, supporting your students with information literacy training and much more.
